Jeremie of CREEPOZOIDZ submitted his band's new material a few months back and I was blown away. He asked me to share his band's new material, and upon searching the internet I may posit that this is a bit of a premiere for the new EP, as I can't find the songs online anywhere. As for the band, imagine Aim Of Conrad and Frodus with further elements of the Discord/DC punk/hardcore style and the occasional Hot Cross riff.

"Punk Life Crisis" is the lone song that wasn't chosen to be rerecorded for the band's new EP. It is a thicker, muddier version of the band's later work but works really well and is probably the strongest song on this 'Demo' which brings Worst Gift to mind, primarily because of the vocals. The "Temp Agency Martyrs" demo is so Frodus it's crazy and is worth checking out regardless of if you've heard the rerecorded version and could even be likened to early Itto work as it is on the much heavier side.

"Election Year" is my favourite track from the new EP 'Mutant Resources' as it is definitely the heaviest and captures the essence of Since By Man and Aim Of Conrad. It's jarring, uncomfortable and fucking pissed off. "Misguided by Vices" is more along the lines of a "medium" song by the band in regards to how heavy the band is. This song is like Worst Gift but heavier, maybe closer to Ladder Devils. "Bastards of the Universe" is another interesting mix of the band's soft and hard elements, with this coming across like Q And Not U covering Helmet and I would say it's got more dance than any of the other tracks. "Riot Date" is the most accessible song, featuring clean vocals and little to no aggressive elements. This song in particular evokes a misty concoction of Secret Smoker and Hum for this reviewer but has that distinguishable CREEPOZOIDZ flair.

Upon writing this review I also realized that the band released two new songs via bandcamp recently. Both songs seem a little lo-fi compared to 'Mutant Resources', but they also pack quite the wallop and continue the sassy, catchy and awkward hardcore with dirtier nods to bands like Whores and Maximum R'n'R, just listen to "Generation Loss" to hear what I mean. "DNR" is the other song on the digital EP, which is a dancey little number that brings Gaff and North America vibes to the forefront.

Not only is this band fuckin' sweet, they are also a three-piece. Wut. Seriously, check these fellas out.
