BTP are from Boston (not Boston) and are currently Britain's best ambassador on the world council for d-beat hardcore. As you might expect, this is raw, fast and heavy, except that it's REALLY raw, REALLY fast and REALLY heavy which sets them apart from the countless also-rans. They also chuck in some satisfyingly melodic Entombed-esque metallic moments too. As befits being on a snazzy new label started by Shane Embury of Napalm Death and having a retooled production job from Mick "Anaal Nathrakh" Kenney, it sounds absolutely thunderous, which more than makes up for the lack of musical invention. As a bonus, you get the tracks from their demo from a few years ago, which just goes to show how consistently good they've been over the years. Monolithic
