Picking up from where Seaside Resort to Violence left off, Headstrung features 17 minutes of up-tempo violence.
The songs are short, simple and take a hearty chomp out of the musical landscape. This is a band who aren’t concerned with the subtleties of things and just want to Thrash it out with short songs and immediate impact.
Shouted vocals with a Hardcore tilt to them are well-performed and his voice is nicely hoarse.
The band have a good energy to them and sound like they’d be really good live. On their last release I liked the inclusion of Thrash influences without a stupid retro/ironic-vibe and this remains true of Headstrung – these tracks know when to be Hardcore and know when to be Metal and pay due respect to both genres.
It’s brief, but satisfying. Check it out.
