PISSJAR: Apathy & Cheap Thrills: 7”

Pissjar from Stockholm deliver eight fun tracks of quintessentially Swedish hardcore on this new EP. Known for being catchy as hell, Swedish core has its own feel that is easily recognizable. On this record, you get a fine taste of that sound. The lyrics are in English, but the musical stylings are directly influenced by the Swedish hardcore of the past. There are lead guitar lines, but it never borders on metal. Don’t let the name fool you. There’s nothing apathetic or cheap going on here. Highly recommended. –Art Ettinger (Religious Vomit, religiousvomit.bandcamp.com)
