Published Jan 15, 2014Obliterations may have just laid out preliminary plans for their debut full-length for Southern Lord, but don't forget that the L.A. hardcore quartet have a 7-inch due ahead of time. Physical copies of their The Hole EP arrive next week through the Volcom Entertainment Vinyl Club, but you can stream the fast blast of punk aggression online now.
Like their debut 7-inch, the four-song set mangles metal and hardcore influences like Black Sabbath and Black Flag into a potent, punishing combo. Just check the "Rise Above"-styled descending riff and thrashed-up pace of "Pay to Live" compared to the gloom-and-doom riff-letting of "The Hole" for proof that the band can play for both teams.
You can stream all of the EP down below and pick it up digitally over on Bandcamp.
