SHRED SAVAGE: Self-titled: 7”

Do you remember when I said these guys sounded like the Adolescents? (No, you don’t.) When I got this, I noticed on the back it said Frank Agnew was on vocals and I got really confused, thinking it to be some joke. I did some research and Frank Jr. is the vocalist in this here band. Anyway, the Adolescents vibe isn’t as strong on this release and it’s for the better. They are beginning to sound like their own band and it sounds great: punk rock with just a twist of metal, but not overwhelmingly so. I can’t wait to see a full-length from these guys.
