JACKALS: Violence Is…: EP

The market town of NorwichEngland has never been the hotbed of hardcore (Deviated Instinct excepted), but Jackals are trying to put that town on the map. Remorseless hardcore bringing to mind the glory years of U.K. hardcore (that’s the early ‘90s if you didn’t already know), when bands like Suffer, Urko, and Health Hazard ruled that mean little island. For the new kids on the block, think Integrity mixed with some of the new wave of British hardcore like the Flex or Arms Race. If that means nothing, then think in-your-face political hardcore with dual vocals that hit like a brick to the mouth. Boss.
