Black Army Jacket / Hemlock - split

Posted on Thursday, September 09, 2010

BAJ start things off with nine short tracks of brutal Hardcore, I guess I’ll call it. They like to incorporate different styles, though, sometimes unleashing a blast of furious speed or a Death growl, others slowing down to a noisy crawl. Hemlock on the other hand start things off with a freaked out revision of the venerable Iron Maiden intro to “Number of the Beast,” and then launch full speed into a couple very basic new-wave Black Metal cuts. The vocals are yelled in a old Punk/Hardcore way, though, which is an interesting idea, but not always executed flawlessly in this case. I appreciate the effort, though. Hopefully we’ll get to hear more from both of these inventive bands soon.
