Disobey- Power & Greed tape review
Disobey- Power and Greed tape review
Beginning with a black metal “Oomph!”, one might get the wrong idea about this EP. However, this is His Hero Is Gone worship with an occasional lead break or melodic harmony shared between the two guitars. This is dark hardcore that sounds like sludgy crust punk- even the likes of Xibalba and Harm’s Way come to mind when jamming this tape. However, this is definitely a great majority part HHIG, a larger minority part Tragedy, and a smaller part general punk/ hardcore influences. In a town devoid of decent crust punk, this is a refreshing sound to hear at times. I kind of wish they were from here, as it would be a nice change of pace. Worth the jam, no doubt. For the crust, a must. For the punk, not quite a slam dunk.
