HOWITZER: Turncoat: 7”

Mar 17, 2008

I think I’ve reviewed Howitzer in the past. I can’t remember what I said though. Let’s start from scratch. What I’m hearing is east coast style hardcore with a heaping helping of the oi thrown in for good measure. I seem to remember previously thinking that they were hyper-patriotic and with a song called “Folded American Flag,” I was expecting more of that. It turns out that the song is about his brother dying in “this bullshit war.” I didn’t see that coming. The record isn’t bad by any means, but not overly memorable. The red and black splatter wax of the record, however, is amazing!
