TIMEKILLER: Bleed Out: 7” EP

The sound is blown out a bit, and there’s some reverb pumped in, but what this Rio de Janeiro crust-flaked hardcore unit puts down is rendered all the more bleak as a result. Judging from what’s here, they’re not on a speed kick like many of the other hardcore bands that come outta Brazil, but prefer rather to let the venom burn and seethe—and then when you least expect it, they hit you with “Sinking in Shit,” which recalls, well, vintage Venom. Not bad at all.
