VEUVE SS: Viscéres: 12” EP

Hardcore and sludge from one band on one side of a twelve inch piece of vinyl. The straight-up hardcore songs are pretty good. The title track, with its late period Black Flag influence, is really good, and the song “Cathédrales” really stands out. “Discipline” is a blinding rager, and the ender “Creward” starts off thrashy then melts into sludge, and it works here, accenting the anger and feeling of resignation. Could be a really good record, but is marred by the sludge of “Comme Les Vers.”
