SEVERED HEAD OF STATE: Power Hazard: LP

These guys mete out some great hardcore here that sounds rooted in the metallic wing of the celebrated U.K.82 tradition while managing not to sound a whit like the hordes of “drunk punx” who profane said tradition with endless tirades on the glory of hops and generic calls for rebellion. Eight tunes here, all pitch perfect, heavy and worth a listen.
