Augurs – “Old Ways” – [Hash Crimes Dispensary]


Blackened SludgeGrind from the Oakland foursome. They played KFJC in Fall of 2013. This 7″, their first official release, came out later that year. It’s hard to pigeonhole as any one genre of extreme metal, but it’s definitely a power hitter. Crushing Doom textures, blastbeats, Blackdeath riffs, and Crusty D-Beat moments. Man-shrieks and girl-growls. Some qualities in common with other contemporary West Coast Black/Crust projects, e.g. Dead Man, Wilt and Caffa. Both sides begin with samples, including Charles Manson on B. It’s a somewhat overused sound bite, but it’s always nice to hear from Charlie.
