PREYING HANDS: Through The Dark 12"

PREYING HANDS: Through The Dark 12" $8.00

Released by: Inimical

From the ashes of the Canadian band, BALLAST, comes PREYING HANDS, taking the next logical step for what could be said to be the third BALLAST LP. The sound has congealed to overtly melodic while still keeping the rawness and raging feel of a hardcore punk band. I hear all kinds of great influences, from Post Regiment to The Avengers to Propagandhi. Nice guitar arrangements with smart drumming that only adds to the ambiance of this record. Spoke's vocals have also taken a great step forward on this release. Great album, can't wait to see what they do next.

I just had the privilege of spending 3 days with these fine folk, really great band to see live, don't miss out, if you get the chance.

ATAKKE: Avalanche 7"

ATTAKKE: Avalanche 7" ***SOLD OUT***

Released by: Mountains Of Madness

3 song new 7" from this NYC band. They are going for a more metal approach, this time, with influence from the pilgrims of the original crust sound, Hellbastard, for example. This, coupled with competent instrumentation and modern production puts ATAKKE in league with the likes of HELLSHOCK. The new sound is definitely a change for the better, if you ask me. The brutal riffs and Chloe's piercing demon vocals are sure to send shivers down your spine.
