About three months ago (I’m terrible) a band emailed me asking if I’d like to have some music sent my way. I said sure, of course, but neglected to realise that they wanted to send me an honest-to-god physical copy of music. Through the mail. So after digging around through the pile of garbage on the kitchen table to find the address (because I have no idea where I live) I sent it back and proceed to wait.
I don’t actually know when it showed up because I forgot to keep checking the mailbox. So my roommate ended up getting real confused at the envelope addressed to “Church of the Riff”. Anyway, I got the disc and a sweet sticker but was a regular scumbag and let it sit on my desk for another couple weeks.
BUT NO MORE!
WOUNDVAC are a grind/hardcore band from Arizona and the envelope contained their sixth release of two new songs on a flexi disc. “They Eat Their Own Young” and “Rumination”.
Both tracks and nasty little rippers that rend and wail through your cranium like any good grindcore should. Short, heavy and fuckin’ efficient, WOUNDVAC make some tasty shit. With these two tracks setting the trend I’m looking forward to what they claw out next.
You can check out these two songs with the Bandcamp stream below or you can head over to their Bandcamp page proper and check out all their other releases, starting with 2014’s excellent self-titled EP.
