MUTANT GENES: Self-titled: 7” EP

Given the band name and the cover art, I was kinda expecting something especially grimy ‘n’ thrashy, but nope, it’s mostly mid-tempo hardcore with some noodly metal inflections here and there. The guitar sound is a bit sterile sounding for the style, but on the whole, the band is tight and I’m betting this shit just rages live.
