First of all: good/amusing to see a band hyphenating their name in the grand tradition of Vio-lence and Pro-pain. In case that little signifier wasn't enough of a giveaway, I'll tell you that Epi-demic play thrash metal with a heavy crossover bent. It's solid rather than scintillating, succeeding by dint of gusto and attack over songsmithery or superlative riffcraft. Power Trip they ain't, but 'Malformed Conscience' is a serviceable enough shot in the arm if you fancy the idea of Cro-Mags colliding with Sodom.
