IRON HAND: Usurper Divine: 7” EP

Take everything I said about Iron Hand’s Liquid Assets release, and apply it here as well. There are four original tracks on Usurper Divine, including two of my favorite of their songs, “Old Habits,” and “Short Sighted.” There isn’t quite as much guitar wankery on this record as on Liquid Assets, but the riffs are just as awesome, and the lyrics are pointed and political, just the way I like. If crust or d-beat are your thing, you really need to check this band out already.
