Wreck - Nervous Wreck
Much to my surprise the first track sounds like something straight off a Trapped Under Ice record. I've even confirmed I wasn't just hearing this by reading a couple of other reviews that say the same thing. Fortunately it doesn't feel all too out of place with three other tracks.
The more I listen to this the less I feel like using the term grunge is acceptable. There is definitely some 90's shit going on here, but it is more like Burn or Helmet. Most songs follow a staggered rhythm that is a little uncomfortable until you get into the groove of it, but after that it is smooth sailing. Despite deviating from the usual hardcore formula these guys are still very obviously a part of the genre. They may stray from the path and sacrifice a little fluidity for originality, but it all works out in the end.
