Abratzk / Galloping Elephants split EP

ABRATZK provide garden variety thrash on their cuts, with one pop-punky change-of-pace number that took me off guard and is quite good. On the other hand (and side), G.E. delivers amazingly intense HC thrash with spirited gruff vocals — a totally winning band. Two outfits to watch out for—and recommendable for the ELEPHANTS’ songs.
