HOWITZER: Turncoat: 7"

May 26, 2008

Howitzer plays awesome hardcore-influenced oi reminiscent of a slightly less dopey Patriot. Or maybe it’s oi-influenced hardcore that they’re going for. In any event, this is super tough, super mean, and super hilarious. Knee-jerk types might take a quick listen and plunk Howitzer into the jingoistic, nationalistic tripe drawer, but the surprising anti-war lyrics on this one defy skin stereotypes.
