STATE FUNERAL: Tory Party Prison: 7” EP flexi

Straight-up hardcore punk that reminds me of the mid-‘80s sound. The tempos range from fast to mid, and the energy is constant. Politically minded, they take aim at the Tories, austerity, and the use of fear to control a population. “Mass Extermination” has a great opening—the drums sound awesome here—and the manic pace of “Austerity’s Grip” is undeniable. That squealing feedback at the end had me thinking there was another song about to begin. Is there more to come? –Matt Average (Flex Punk / Boss Tuneage, bosstuneage.bigcartel.com)
