MURO: Ataque Hardcore Punk: 12” EP

May 20, 2019

A North American reissue of this Bogota band’s 2017 album. Mostly mid-tempo hardcore—not too fast, not too wild—is where most of the stuff on here sits, with definite hints of South American ’core of the past in evidence. The songs are strong, with much sophistication in structure while managing to stay very much within the parameters of “punk.” Limited to five hundred copies with some cool extras added to the packaging. Good stuff all around. –Jimmy Alvarado (Beach Impediment)
