Ripping and chuggy distorted hardcore in the vein of Extortion or even Godstomper. The first track ‘Ball and Chain’ is an absolute belter – so heavy, so angry! ‘Satan’s Snatch’ struck me as a bit shitty in comparison to the rest of this – I guess mostly because its mid-tempo and has a really bad, almost Muse-esque twiddly guitar part in the background. Next there’s a cover of Infest’s ‘Behind The Tongue’ though, which is fucking awesome and pulls it right back. Despite the disdain a lot of people have for ‘powerviolence’ (samey, derivative, overplayed etc.), there seems to still be bands getting this pretty right. Shame this demo isn’t more consistent.
