SGURD: The Beginning of the End: 7”

Holy shit, finally a powerviolence record to write home about. Italian based SGURD is doing it right with chainsaw guitars that actually sound good, a solid and heavy rhythm section, and freakyish vocals that sort of tread a punk-metal-glamazon trajectory. Think David Johansen meets Jenna Pup meets Darby Crash. Aesthetically this is gold: it has decapitation art that doesn’t suck and a DIY lyric insert boasting the hot line “WE DRANK FROM THE SAME SKULL.” I’m fucking into this. –Candace Hansen (Adagio830)
