Hellmouth Destroy Everything, Worship Nothing

Hellmouth Destroy Everything, Worship Nothing
Hellmouth have got an interesting vibe and flow about them, ranging from all out punk rock hardcore with nods to Black Flag and Disfear to grooves pulling from Black Sabbath and the ferocity of Venom. You might think that all of those influences would be problematic, however, you would be wrong, as Hellmouth drive a distinctive flavour down your throat. Introductory track "Pick A Coffin" is short and punchy, hardcore and grimy, fierce and heavy, delivering a sound these Michigan natives excel at throughout Destroy Everything, Worship Nothing. "Pawnshop St. Christopher," "Dust" and "Drop Out & Destroy" are all in the same raucous vain of punk, unlike "Blackest Void," which delivers a sludge-like rock rhythm and grooving bass line, much like "The Masters Have Poisoned The Slaves," yet manages to become dissonant and distant as it unravels. Destroy Everything, Worship Nothing isn't perfect but does offer up some solid, thrashy, crusty hardcore. (Ferret)
