VIRVON VARVON: Mind Cancer: CS

May 27, 2020

I absolutely love it when I am led astray by a band’s name or cover art—scratchy artwork featuring an angel of death standing on a pile of skulls—before hearing it. When I received this tape in my review batch this cycle, I would have bet anything that it was metal of the darkest variety. The font for the band name is of the Nordic rune variety. I braced myself to be underwhelmed… then got a full dose of fuzzed-out budget punk with trading off female and male vocals. I love this so much! Reminded me of Booji Boys a fair bit, which is always a good thing. I am now going to search out their other releases. –Ty Stranglehold (Girlsville, girlsville.bandcamp.com)
