MOUTH SEWN SHUT / INSTANT ASSHOLE: Split: 7” EP

Mouth Sewn Shut goes right up to that metal/hardcore edge and starts a fight. Is this a metal band with hard core chops or vice versa? I don’t have an answer, but it sure sounds great. Instant Asshole is trying to prove a point: cram every metal cliche into a hardcore format and let it rip. Point taken. While you’re drifting off to dreamland, heads are banging in Oakland.
