HERDS: Michigan: EP

Noise-drenched, slightly metal flavored, elbow-to-the-neck hardcore from Milwaukee. Rorschach heaviness doused with the piss and sweat leftover from a Nine Shocks Terror show. Not as fast as their previous records but still as thundering. There’s a man vs. nature/the elements theme going in all four songs. Don’t throw away that spaghetti-thin strip of paper inside the cover; it’s a download code.
