IMPALERS: Psychedelic Snutskallar: 12”

Texas’ Impalers kick start this 12” with an epic side-long hardcore punk assault with the fast but steady pace of d-beat influences and a reverb-y guitar tone to coincide with the record’s “psychedelic” theme. The second side has four songs in the same vein as the lead off track though obviously not as lengthy, which makes for easier digestion of this hardcore smorgasbord. As varied as this may sound, I can hear elements of Mötörhead, Totalitär, and later period Black Flag throughout. Not sleeping on this band anymore and neither should you.
