EgoKill-Destroying The Vibes (2013)

Hailing from New York, comes along this crossover band, a genre which started to take off around 85'-86'. Mixing  Accused, Minor Threat with Exodus, Slayer,and D.R.I. These young kids capture the intensity of hardcore and the aggression of thrash. Imagine the bastard love-child of "Bonded by Blood" and " The return of Marha Splatterhead" and you might have an idea what this sounds like. This album definitely got balls. The riffs are simple, catchy, and fast-paced, the drumming is typical punk. The lyrics range B-movie ultra violence to the Sickening stuff in life, a hell of a lot of fun, for some reason, I can't get enough of this. Don't expect complex songwriting or musical virtuosity. If you want to bang your head into oblivion, Attitude is what Egokill are all about. I have one major complaint about this album: I didn't get it in original format (just a CD-R). However, you owe it to yourself to check this one out: I promise you won't be disappointed !

  1. Thanks for the review! And it's good to hear that you enjoyed the hell out of the album. To date, we have never pressed anything we recorded so CD-R's and the internets are our sole methods of distribution. DIY till the day we die.
