Young And In The Way does the heavily black metal-infused hardcore thing better than anyone else, and it’s no surprise that Deathwish snatched YAITW up for its upcoming LP. Just blazing, venomous, dissonant-yet-melodic black metal-core that reminds me of both Catharsis and Spread The Disease at times. Withdrawal delivers more straightforward Ringworm/Integrity-influenced hardcore that isn’t quite as refreshing or impressive as YAITW’s side, but is still furious, pummeling, and well executed enough to keep me psyched throughout. Great split.
