OWEN HART played metallic-laden hardcore with breakdowns showcasing wailing guitars riffs amidst the caustic, chuggy instrumentals and indecipherable shrieks that are the vocals. Think early Converge meets the grindy-ness of Oktober Skyline, some Pantera/Metallica licks and insane Graf Orlock screaming. I don't know how I came across these guys almost a decade ago, but I'm glad I did. I'm not ecstatic though, as I picked up 'Earth Control' five years later and was just meh over the band, as the style didn't grab me like the 7" did. I'm not sure if it was a loss of interest over time on my part or if the LP just wasn't as interesting. The 12" is much more produced and leans even more towards the metal end of the spectrum and loses a bit of the grind and fierceness in the vocals. The self titled 7" has more variety, flair and is sonically more rewarding with the songs "So a Mexican Guy, a Black Guy and a Chinese Guy..." and "Those Goddamn Devil Eyes". It's nothing to write home about, in my book, but if you like the really heavy, fast and metallic grind/hardcore you might be all over this.
