This will be a quickie for two reasons. One, I’m lazy, and two, Mr. I.S Lander over at NO CLEAN SINGING did a spiffy little review that pointed me in this direction. Check that out right hur. So the reason for this post is a 5 track banger from a group of New York based hooligans known as Cut Your Teeth. “2 Hot, 3 Handle” is yet another release in their long collection of fast. fucking. thrash punk.
I am way too late to this party, so I owe my debts to Islander for tapping another keg of this greasy madness. If you could imagine for a second, riding a grizzly bear, covered in bacon grease, drunk off beer, ether and grass trimmings, stark naked and singing the Lithuanian national anthem. On fire.
You would have no idea what the fuck was going on but you would have the time of your fucking life. Blistering thrash anthems? Check. Breakdowns? Check. Swagger? Check. Eye melting solos? Check. Ignorant as fuck, toss-your-grandmother-through-the-window-because-it-seemed-like-a-good-idea? Check.
It’s not just the fact they play a demolishing mix of hardcore, deathcore, thrash, punk and shred. They do it well. The solo’s are creative, as are the random sound hybrids scattered through the release. Gangster rap swag breakdown? Why not? Want to throw some syncopation right in front of the thrash train? Eh fuck it, it’ll sound awesome.
It’s the solo work that really tickles me in the jiggles. Pure, white hot SHRED, blazing lines of awesome across your subconscious. Combined with smatterings of helplessly head nodding riff cannons and you’ve got a band who not only has more fun than you, they also play better than you.
It’s fun, it’s fast and it’s fucking awesome. Go get fucked up for the low cost of free over at Bandcamp.
Go give Islander some love too at NO CLEAN SINGING. Just watch for the lorises. They’re viscous little bastards.
