MAKABERT FYND / NICE IDIOT: Split: EP

Here’s the first installment of the Fuck Your Scene,Kid series from Kranium (who are off to a great start—four releases so far, and all of ‘em great). Makabert Fynd slam out three absolute ragers that are heavy, fast, and urgent. It’s a noisy affair, with thrashy tempos giving way to mid-paced breaks, before throwing themselves back into the sonic storm. They remind me of early DS-13, when that band first came out and had something to prove. Makabert Fynd, so far, are a great band, which I’m sure we’ll be hearing more of soon. Nice Idiot are ripping hardcore that sounds like a mix Y2K thrash meets the Zero Boys and The Freeze. Really hyper and urgent with quick tempo changes, a feeling of looseness, everything teetering on coming apart, and vocals that bounce back and forth between shouting and talking. Seek this one out and don’t stop until you have it.
