Blend of hardcore and metal with a penchant for stoner
Memphis label Typhoon Killer Records presents their newest addition in hometowners Namazu. The act forges members from Hosoi Brothers and Tanks into a blend of hardcore and metal with a penchant for stoner. While hard to narrow to a genre, 'Works Cited' universally works well. Furious cut 'Dragged Fighting from his Tomb' is symbolic of the band and album sound – driving rhythm, breakneck riffage, noisy mix. 'Hill Clan Cross' is surely a highlight, sort of this weird Motorhead meets Red Fang meets Torche monster. It's loud, punchy and unique, but leaves room for improvement in the mix and production. I'd take a refill based on the effort.
