epilogue vol 1

Abolition / Hang the Bastard - Split 7 inch (Import)


Abolition, a young band drenched in the chuggy world of Trial, who’ve adopted the visceral rage of Chokehold and lyrical ire of ‘90s metalcore bands such as Culture. See: ‘No Remorse’. 'Worn Thin', on the other hand, contains flashes of the quirky grooves of Atlas Shrugged, which I can only hope will materialise in the band's future material. Great stuff!

On the flipside, Hang The Bastard have clearly been dipping their toes into Integrity’s back catalogue. With a plethora of UK bands such as Rot In Hell and Wayfarer already abiding by the Clevo regime, HTB are a welcome addition for followers of the formula. That said, there are traces of Kickback’s snarling vocals and discordant riffs in ‘Most Will Swim on a Lake of Fire’, and ‘Cavern’ is an equally menacing effort.
