War Trash: Brutal and harsh d-beat with some Bolt Thrower tones from this Bay Area four-piece, featuring members of Stormcrow and Population Reduction. Vocals are delivered with a mental image of tonsil and throat destruction. Guitar and bass thunder with a bottom heavy roar with no effort to sound pretty or nice. Kind of left me feeling that my life ahead is bleak. Whatshame?: Los Angeles-based band carries the harshness theme to their side. Multiple vocal attack with screaming and guttural trade offs. Heavy crust with grind overtones blast out of the speakers like a sandstorm filling the room. Good offering from both bands. This reinforces my enjoyment when seeing both bands live.
