Swallowed By the World (Dead Beat)
by Scott Hefflon
Hardcore punk with vocals so raspy, you wonder if the singer will even be able to talk in a couple years. But I doubt this fucker cares, cuz he’s a pissed off ball of hate spitting on everything fucked up about this world. It’s quite a list, and this guy’s up for the task. There’s actually some clever, angular guitarwork amidst the fuck-all rampages. The kinda stuff Dead Kennedys used to do so well. You can slam to it, and sometimes the progressions are a little creepy, a little alien. But yeah, mostly this shit’s about as clever as a bottle broken over your head.
