MOSTRO, IL: Self-titled: CD

Hard-driving punk with a shot of metal from this Boston outfit. They fire on all cylinders on an eight-song sonic blaster that will leave you choking on fumes when all is said and done. The production allows the dynamics to shine through to good effect. “Horror Movie Moon” and “Like Shadows” are the standouts, but they should all do the trick. –Sean Koepenick (Death Kiss, ilmostroboston.bandcamp.com)
