FLOWERS OF EVIL: City of Fear: LP

Nov 22, 2017

Punchy, deceptively simple punk that sounds like some long lost proto-hardcore band. There’s a lot going on at the surface—snotty vocals over a band that recalls the harsher edges of the late ‘70s/early ‘80s punk rock on both coasts—but just underneath is another layer of odd chords and subtle drone leads that add texture and a broader palate than what might be noticed at first blush and saves ‘em from sounding like a nostalgia act. –Jimmy Alvarado (Deranged)
