REAL UGLY: Live, Suffer, and Struggle: EP

This band’s name could not be more perfect in describing both their sound and their hideous artwork. Seriously, the strange looking transient on the cover and the cankles on the back make this record difficult to look at. I wish I could say that the music makes it all tolerable. I feel that if you make the conscious decision to be a guitar/drum duo it usually means that a bass guitar’s presence is unnecessary. I doubt including a bass would help these songs sound any better. Think Threatener’s little brothers jamming out after listening to S.O.B. for the first time. Then think of a better way to spend four dollars.
