FRAPPÉS, LES / DRIP FEED: Split: 7” EP

Les Frappés: Gallop-speed hardcore from France. Both tracks evince modern sensibilities in the songwriting, primarily in that both strive for an anthemic feel with big, shouty choruses. Drip Feed: This Swedish band contributes another gallop-speed thrasher and a mid-tempo rager to the proceedings, both with a strong U.S. sensibility and English lyrics. –Jimmy Alvarado (Robin Lindquist)
