Having been hugely impressed by last year's 'Liars' release I was looking forward to hearing some new stuff from the Italian hardcore mob with some anticipation and whilst this isn't a new album this 3-tracker gives a nice indication of where the band are heading. And I'm pleased to report it's very much in the right direction.
Taking the sound and style that made 'Liars' so appealing they've actually toughened up the guitars a touch in the riffing area, with both 'The End Of Everything' and 'Sick' possessing some riffing that has a bit of the Scott Middletons about them, but they also have the same infectious groove sections that graced much of 'Liars'. The other track 'Bad Wolves' is an absolute stormer, kicking off with a slightly different, melodic riff before launching headlong into an up-tempo screamer.
Short but very sweet and a great indicator that Frez and his band of merry men are still flying the European and Italian Hardcore flags with much aplomb.
