Reviews Zhenia Golov / Botox Party Split

Zhenia Golov / Botox Party


Railroaded Records teams up two Eastcoast acts on this limited split 7” release: Zhenia Golov from New Brunswick, New Jersey and Botox Party from Richmond, Virgina.

Zhenia Golov return with two new cuts of fast, raw hardcore punk. They’ve built of their previous 7” release with more fury and it suits them well. I’d like to see what they’d offer in the form of a full-length. But for the time being I’ll follow-up on all their vinyl releases.

On the other hand, Botox Party is new to my ears. The three-piece writes fast, melodic punk ala Descendents. “Kill the Light” is anchored on the guitars, which have a Bay Area punk vibe going on. In fact, these tunes all remind me a bit of the 90’s Eastbay scene, minus the British punk worship.

Overall, a good split release. Besides, who doesn’t like MAD Magazine inspired cover art?
