Sømerset hail from Münster and play some chunky, stompy, screamy hc that touches base with Cloud Rat, Punch and Left For Dead - a promising set of influences that result in a fairly decent racket. Despite the heaviness it's not an all-out slugfest - there are a couple of prettier breakdowns which, when coupled with the strangled-duck vocals, actually remind me of Carlisle or the first Spirit Of Versailles 7". The six songs pass in a brisk 12 minutes, which provides enough time to get a flavour of the band's wares and whet your appetite for more without risking an outstayed welcome. Ok, then.
