ENDORPHINS LOST / OSK: Split: 7”

Endorphins Lost are from Seattle and are doing a sort of throwback powerviolence thing in the Pessimiser/Slap A Ham vein. They aren’t really pushing the boundaries of the style but their side is well done with a heavy and slightly gritty recording. Fans of Despise You should be into their chaotic start/stop riffs. OSK are from Canada and sound slightly more modern but are still definitely taking cues from the ‘90s scene, though they incorporate more of the sludgy elements. Their side is the stronger of the two but the bands complement each other. –Ian Wise (Rotten To The Core)
