NEW FLESH, THE: The Absurd: LP

Punchy death rock-type punk stuff from a Bay Area outfit, featuring cats involved at some point with Deskonocidos, Neon Piss, and Vaaska. The tunes are dark in tone and the soaring guitars are in evidence, but they approach the tunes with an aggressive punk edge, so things are more like Ian Curtis fronting early TSOL than a self-absorbed wash of morose navel-lint picking.
