BOOTLICKER: 6 Track E.P.: 7”

I am so out of the loop with what goes on in hardcore these days. I won’t even pretend to know what I am talking about when it comes to subgenres. Bootlicker are from British Columbia and play tough, blown-out hardcore. (Non-metal sounding, which is a huge plus for me.) Most of the tracks are mid-tempo and have a U.K. flavor to them. Gruff vocals but you can still make out that words are being uttered. I am really into this and will go about tracking down other EPs. –Ty Stranglehold (Neon Taste, neontasterecords.bandcamp.com)
