I can make this quick. Do you like The Blood Brothers? Yes, okay so listen to the band's early material, especially their 'The Plot Thickens' LP. Next, do you like Akimbo and Graf Orlock? Yes, good now get cracking on 'Ugly/Heartless' LP and 'Substances' EP which I would also describe as still being influenced by The Blood Brothers and they have a bit of a Genghis Tron aftertaste. 'Ugly/Heartless' includes some demos, which are a great mix of the new instrumental material with the older, screamier-style vocals. Check out my favourite songs below and then grab the two albums in the mp3 download here. These fellas were a really good, underrated, hook laden screamy/metallic hardcore band with a strong grasp of writing heavy yet catchy tunes and screaming much akin to The Fall Of Troy.
