Published Dec 03, 2015The holiday season often involves plenty of stress eating, and now it can also include the Vancouver band Stress Eating, since they just released an EP called Nothing.
The fiery, nihilistically titled collection was recorded by Errol West and Chris Merrell at the Vancouver performance space 333. Its four songs are loud and ferociously distorted, with unhinged arrangements characterized by lightning-fast punk strumming and bloody-murder hardcore vocals. "Da Noid" has a slow, threatening breakdown in the middle, but otherwise, this EP is pure explosive rage.
This is the follow-up to Stress Eating's eponymous 2013 cassette. A Bandcamp commenter on that prior EP noted, "I like how they play fast and shout." If that sounds up your alley, there's a good chance you'll like Nothing.
