INSULT / RAMPANT DECAY: Split: 7”

The first band up is Insult. This band rips out some really tight and fast hardcore on their six songs that verge on losing control, but hangs on with a few fingers. They are more old school, super-fast hardcore with the last of their songs, “Diddler on Parole,” being the longest at just over one and a half minutes and sounding a bit like latter day Black Flag. Rampant Decay is next with three songs and they have a more modern hardcore sound, closer to grind and sludge and with longer songs. It seems to be a bit lopsided in the two styles, but it was a pretty good split all the same, although Insult was the winner on this one for me.
