How to sum up RWTH‘s debut? It’s a lot of yelling. And there’s some chainsaw guitar and mad, mad, mad drumming, too.
The band is five guys who go by first names only, making hardcore in what sounds like the basement of a Chicago slaughterhouse. Seriously, though, it’s actually recorded pretty well. You’re able to hear the influences in the guitar of Metallica’s early stuff, but also 1980s headbanger “punk”–that music that crossed the lines between The Sex Pistols and Guns N Roses. Good, hard stuff. Stream the whole thing here.
