SOGA: Demo: 12” EP

Soga dish out killer hardcore punk with a raw edge that never lets up in intensity. The songs are raging and reckless, and somehow the band manages to keep the madness contained and controlled enough to put it all down on vinyl. There are moments where it really does sound like the songs are about to blow apart at the seams. Nothing sounds calculated as they smash their way through each song. It’s as though they have this approach of having only one chance to get it down and get it right. This was originally released as an MP3 back in 2018, so I’m hoping there’s more to come in the near future. –Matt Average (Iron Lung, ironlungrecords.bigcartel.com)
