Brighton's End the Agony commit their nihilistic broken worldview to their first slab of vinyl. As a three piece they were one of the best bands I've seen in the past couple of years, channelling the scuzzy filth of NOOTHGRUSH via the agonised despair of DYSTOPIA and the distilled hatred of CROSSED OUT's slow parts. Recorded in their early days as a 2 piece, this lacks none of their later power, and they throttle every tortured note out as if it pains both them and you to do so. With punk rock currently reinforcing the dams against a deluge of wannabes and generic 'poserviolence', End The Agony are the real deal. Highly recommended.
