Now check out some killer new shit…

Here’s the demo review for Syracuse, NY’s HUNTED DOWN from the current issue of MRR!

After a quick classical piece, this thing tears into some seriously fucking blazing, falling apart, wild, rampaging, flailing, adjective-inspiring hardcore, that, to be honest, I didn’t expect and caught me completely off guard. I knew this Syracuse band was gonna be at least up my alley in some way, but holy fuck is this evil and furious. The vocals are screaming and reverbed to all fuck. The guitars and bass are buried in just enough fuzz to sound rotten yet not fall into the box of “noise punk.” And the drums, well, they’re kinda hidden in the whole mess, save some cymbal hits and theses occasional huge Godzilla-like thuds, that I can only assume to be tom hits. What a monster. It looks like I just found another cassette addition to my 2011 top ten list. (
