Backtrack

Deal With the Devil

This EP is fairly similar to another recent 6131 release from Bad Seed. This isn't a bad thing. This is a renaissance of sorts for heavy NYHC. Where Bad Seed seems to fail for most is that they don't exploit the grooves they can get into. On the other hand, Backtrack has yet to find a groove they don't like as they stomp through this EP. Once again brutality of sorts ensues but the breaks give the listener a nice breather and show how strong this band is as musicians. The solos that are used sparingly are really great and give a lift to the songs they appear on. This is a great short release of pissed older styled NYHC.
