Cruickshank – Cruickshank

Canadian Sludgers Cruickshank hit us with their debut self-titled album, and it’s a strangely clever one.

Sporadic surges of speed litter this track but it …

Bandit – Playfastordie

Rough, raw, and reckless, Playfastordie by America’s Bandit is a crazy run through basement-ethic punk, powerviolence, grindcore, and hardcore.
