s/t (2017) (2017/DERANGED)

HARDCORE. Six primitive marching orders from San Diego's HEAT culling lean inspiration from the well of early-'80s Boston dirge and late-'80s NY beat-down hardcore, with upfront drum beats busting forward to propel charging guitars that buoyance tough, throaty vocals. Curt and to the point, with quick turns and drops in short, quick bursts. Recalls many influences, copies none as HEAT slows to mosh, sets to stun, energetic rumbling that throttles in a broadly more expansive recording than hardcore originators, but shines in a stronger yet similarly manifest presentation. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
