Life Form – “Creepy Crawly” – [Distort Reality]
Debut EP from gnash and thrash hardcore punk-noise outfit out of Portland, OR. Menacing bass lines pummel over the drums with the guitar hardly recognizable wallowing in its own mess of feedback excrement. Snarling reptilian vocals ranting about anti-society rage, self-deprecation and religious refusal are unfortunately pretty intelligible as there’s FCC on all tracks except A1, A2. This shit is drunk, sloppy and in your face like the 300 pound crusty that throws himself around the pit knocking everyone on their asses. These guys probably drink Popov and hassle yuppies under the Hawthorne bridge on the regular. I’d join them for a smoke, as long as they’re not bumming mine.
