BLEAK: No Light No Tunnel: CD

These cats put the hammer down from the first note and don’t let up until they run out of grooves. Chaotic, dissonant, and downright assaultive hardcore is the order of the day here—flailing tempo changes, pummeled stringed instruments, and a cat that sounds like he’s pulling howls from the bottom of his feet, through his body, and across vocal cords that don’t stand a chance. The sound for your next abscessed tooth. –Jimmy Alvarado (Hex, hexrecords.bigcartel.com)
