MYSTERIOUS SKIN: Demo ‘14: Cassette

Damn, these cats can play. What initially sounds like pretty standard hardcore is underscored by moments of tight chugga-chugga and stop-on-a-dime riffery. I think a shift of a few degrees would find ‘em as a thrash band. Everything comes together well, with screamed, high-pitched, hoarse vocals leading the charge (and whoa, actual words are evident in said vocals! Crazy!)
