Glue EP

With an extremely downbeat and aggressive sound, Austin, Texas four-piece band Glue follows up their noisy and vulgar 2012 demo with a 2014 self-titled 7” that picks up right where the demo left off. The first of four tracks featured here is the brief “Enemy,” which operates at a moderate pace and includes a sort of diabolical, horror movie chord progression as well as thunderous drumming. Following an sparse intro section, “Backwards Society” heads right back into more furious sonic territory with screeching guitar runs and abrasive, punctuated and raspy vocals. The gurgling opening declaration of “DIE!!!!” heard over a stomping rhythm and menacing instrumentation really says all one needs to know about “Opportunist,” and the openly hostile closing track “Disgrace” would likely send a live crowd into a frenzy with its blurted profanity, violent tempo change-ups, and all-out guitar assault. Throughout these tracks, the barked-out, death rattle vocals compliment the gnarly instrumentation perfectly, and as nine minutes of unsophisticated, downright mean and nasty hardcore punk, the Glue 7" comes recommended.
