Old Wounds/Trenchfoot - Split
Enter Trenchfoot. I've seen the name here and there, but I've never listened to them. One thing that isn't a huge deal but definitely distracting is that the production is distinctly different between both bands. The Old Wounds songs are produced much better-everything is very well set in the mix, and the sound quality from the guitar and bass tone to the cymbal crashes and kick drum are all great. On Trenchfoot's songs, the sound is a lot muddier and the vocals are definitely lower in the mix. Maybe this was done on purpose for the band's sound, but it sounds a bit odd. After listening to the Trenchfoot tracks, it's clear that these bands belong on a split together. If you like Old Wounds, chances are you'll like Trenchfoot. Their songs are shorter and more to-the-point, but all in all they clearly draw some similar influences.
This is a well-done split by two up-and-coming East Coast bands. Although Old Wounds steals the show on this one for me, I'll definitely go back and check out Trenchfoot's output.
