STREET WEAPON: Quick to Die: 7”

I imagine that Virginia Beach’s Street Weapon sound amazing live. Every riff is catchy, and every instrument sounds great on this recording, except for the vocals. While in general I appreciate the echo-y effect on vocals in certain recordings, the vocals on Quick to Die sound like they’re being yelled out of a tin can. It takes the raw intensity of the band and drops it down several notches. While I will likely check out Street Weapon when they tour in a post-COVID world, I’m not likely to listen to this record. –Paul J. Comeau (Not For The Weak, nftwrecords.com)
