Venomous, violent and unrelenting. Sweet, review done.

Ahhhh not really. It could be, though. Short and sweet, just like EGARRA. Releasing just three songs in 2015, this four-piece slashed through grindy, mathy, screamy hardcore like it was a piece of cake. Drawing likely influences from bands such as Kiss The Sky Goodbye, Phoenix Bodies and Crestfallen, their one to two minute bursts of epic and ferocious math grind both pummel and connect with the listener, like a good kidnapper or hostage taker, I'd reckon.

The 'Demo' is sensational, with opener "Genosha" tearing rabidly through a minute fifty of noisy bliss. If your will hasn't caved in by 1:20, the feedback soaked breakdown at the end with get you - I promise. "Bloodhaven" is a two-minute dandy of ballistic drumming, sick riffs, breakdowns and nearly-maniacal screaming. I'd be amiss not to point out the shear power and force that vocalist Kyle is able to summon is remarkable, and sounds very much like Kiss The Sky Goodbye.

The band's final release, a digital single titled "Thomas and Logan", employs a consistent onslaught of dual screaming and breakneck drumming. I think it's safe to say with this that the band was likely headed in an even faster, crazier direction at the time of their demise. The section from 47 seconds to 1:05 is phenomenal, employing single, ringing bass notes amidst noodley guitars and beautifully placed screams.

Hot damn, EGARRA truly did everything short and awesome, unfortunately that included their band lifespan.
