Lewd Acts Black Eye Blues

Lewd Acts Black Eye Blues
Finally releasing an official full-length album after four years of splits, EPs and compilations, Californian hardcore outfit Lewd Acts prove that their attention-garnering ...On Lonely Nights effort was no fluke. Grimy hardcore that revels in soaking wet distortion rages away under throaty vocals pushing so hard they threaten to explode in a blast of bile and sinew. Together though, the double-time pacing and ceaseless aggression create an attack that renders most modern hardcore acts somewhat half-baked and/or overly dramatic. Grasping onto a modestly intuitive melodic tendency here and there creates wonderful dynamics and ensures the truly heavy parts have that much more impact. Dirty and loose, dark and agile, Black Eye Blues doesn't deserve attention so much as commands it. (Deathwish Inc.)
