First off, I learned a new word thanks to this record: torsion. Good word, that one. What’s it mean? Look it up, you lazy bastards. That’s what dictionaries are for. Anyway, the music these guys mete out is of the mid-tempo hardcore variety peppered with subtle sprigs of melody, not unlike maybe early Hüsker Dü when they’re not shooting for full-on pop but ain’t going the über-thrash route, either. Results aren’t too bad, although maybe the A side goes on a teensy bit longer than it should. Decent slab o’ wax overall. Thanks for the addition to my vocabulary, too.
