REGRET: Self-titled: 7”

Three tracks built upon a bedrock of d-beat, crust, and metal from a Bristol, U.K. band which continues that city’s long-standing tradition of thunderous and powerful punk rock. This has a big, thick sound which rumbles and reverberates through my body when played loud. I’m also a sucker for covers featuring black and white pictures of birds, so this wins on all counts. –Rich Cocksedge (Pumpkin, pumpkinrecords.co.uk / Ruin Nation, [email protected], ruination.org / Maloka, malokadistro.com / Never Fall Into Silence, neverfallintosilencerecords.bigcartel.com)
