Impulse CV- Chula Violence EP review

Impulse CV- Chula Violence EP review
Loud, limited in length, and Latino, Impulse’s 2nd EP is classic west coast powerviolence in the vein of No Comment, Capitalist Casualties, Los Crudos, Siege, etc.  The production on this is stellar- the guitars, drums, and vocals are all particularly powerful and all stand out in their own way- though this often comes at the expense of the sound of the bass, powerviolence is usually more drum and guitar-oriented than bass or vocal-oriented.  This is very much a flying of the old-school flag that Slap-A-Ham helped found- though this isn’t anything now, this sure feels like a modernized version of classic bands (i.e. if bands back in the late 80s/early 90s could get into better studios and record with better equipment), and that is fucking gnarly.  It’s not new, it’s not old, because it’s the classic old sound with new faces, a perfect Taoist harmony of the two.  Circle pit and under a minute (for every song).  I approve.
