Some heavy-hitting stuff here – taut, wild-eyed brutality that's metal-edged and punk direct but dosed with post-hardcore's dissonant spaciousness. The word that springs to mind more than any other is torrential, with everything - swarthy riffs, dragged-out vocals, stampeding drums and all the rest of it – hammering relentlessly down as though it'll never stop. Musically it's in the same ballpark as the recent No Man LP, and said band serves as a neat enough comparison in another way too, since Horsewhip also comprise old punks (in this case, folks from Reversal Of Man, Early Grace, The Sutek Conspiracy and Order Of Importance...) who should probably know better but still can't see fit to quit just yet.
