Chewed Up

Top Google results for Brain Freeze include chewing minty gum and drinking water to induce brain freeze and eating an ice cream to cure migraines. Brain Freeze, the band, meanwhile play headache inducing hardcore punk at 100 mph. The vocals are spat out as fast as is humanly possible; even Six from Blossom would be proud. Okay, they slow down a fair bit after 'Sucking Lemons'. It's all pretty standard and why you would listen to this ahead of Minor Threat I have no idea, but I'm no connoisseur of this genre. Overall a decent effort containing numerous limitations.
