BURNOUT: Self-titled: 7”

Sep 20, 2017

Why reinvent the wheel when you can light it on fire and spin it really fucking fast? Burnout, from Phoenix, Ariz., seems to rage by that ethos. The drum and guitar two-piece (Emmett Thatcher and Jirix-Mie Paz of Gay Kiss) lifts so much from Slap-A-Ham Records that the 7” sounds like unreleased Spazz. Is that a bad thing? Not if you like fastcore and powerviolence. Count me in. –Sean Arenas (To Live A Live, tolivealie.com / Blast House)
