Fundamentally hardcore but displaying horror punk tendencies
COMMENTS:
Second Metal Blade release for L.A. Veteran hardcore act Twitching Tongues. Overall, it's the group's fourth full-length to date. The band defies sub-genres, hardcore as the basic fundamentals but adding in horror punk tendencies, sludgy riffs and a repeated stoner vibe. Vocally, it's a crapshoot of slower clean passages and a slight uptick for more aggressive yelling. Some tracks are mid-paced while others like "Kill for You" are more of the power ballad variety. Twitching Tongues leaves me at a loss for words. Good, bad or indifferent? I have no clue.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Bronx Casket Company, Life of Agony
