Boar Hunter – “S/T” – [Vinehell Records]
San Jose 2012 hardcore/punk/sort-of-metal pissed off about all the right things. Great Bay Area feel; Dystopia functionally drunk and sped up and unfortunately without any satirical sampled intros. Few solos, vocals are growled, and lyrics almost entirely KFJC reactionary against excess, war, jealous ownership, fear, etc etc etc. Distantly descended from Motorhead stock, pairs well with Black Cobra or High On Fire, goes out of their way to tell off Wotanists.
#9 was my favorite and the most lyrically coherent , ‘No discretion for the place that you were born, no discretion for the clothes that you have worn, no discretion for the life you choose to live, you will never know the truth in a world that will never cut you loose.’ #3, 8, 12 are good too.
