PRIMITIVE PACT: Self-titled: EP

UK82 worship from this New York outfit. The most interesting thing about this is the death rock guitar that makes its presence known at the beginning of the song before giving way to the formula of this style. If you’re looking for originality, you definitely won’t find it here. But the playing is intense and relentless. Check out the hammering “Soldiers for War” and “No Self Choice” (the thunderous opener is an attention grabber for sure). A little more of their own personality and not playing it so safe by sticking to the formula could do wonder for this band. They have the potential to be better than this.
