WARTHOG: Self-titled: 7” EP

These folks have been around for a little while, but this was the first I heard from them. They have an ‘80s Midwest USHC base sound with modern, feral intensity. The vocalist kind of reminds me of NYHC Antidote, which is always a good thing. The lyrics are clearly a byproduct of anger and frustration with being human is this world, always a good source for material. Pretty all right, but doesn’t really stand out amongst the rest of the hardcore punk in the world. –Vincent (Beach Impediment)
