MURDERESS: Self-titled: EP

It’s not easy to turn heads with your new melodic crust band, that’s for sure. There isn’t a more predictable, oversaturated punk rock subgenre out there. Most of the time, it sounds like these songs just write themselves. Upon receiving the Murderess CD, replete with high contrast skulls and war lyrics written in Ye Olde English font, I hadn’t the highest expectations. Luckily, there’s as much Sacrilege as there is Wolfbrigade here, and I’m a total sucker for that vocal delivery. Murderess reminds me of After The Bombs if that band was on a more melodic tip. Pleasantly surprising.
