WITHDRAWAL: Faith Flesh & Blood: 7” EP

While the presence of one o’ them, “Naw, it ain’t really a swastika” swastikas next to an upside down cross on the back cover did elicit a raised eyebrow, the music presented here is spot-on hardcore up to its neck in metal influence, sorta like Gehenna slowed down or some other metalcore group I can’t quite put my finger on. This kinda stuff appears to be enjoying a renaissance, which is a bit of relief after years of silly black metal and painful nü metal-influenced “hardcore” pabulum.
