What have these filthy punks done now? angry new jack punks and old sarcastic punks

What have these filthy punks done now? angry new jack punks and old sarcastic punks
Nails Call of the Void Suicidal Tendencies
Nails‘ positive message for the living: “Abandon All Life.” Not exactly grind, but in the realm of grind; not really crust, but pretty crusty stuff; not death metal, but fast, heavy and harsh as the “brutal” bands, Nails’ 10 songs revolve around harsh sounds. Careful not to wear out their welcome, these songs go by pretty fast, a good thing. This is over before you can catch your breath, anyway. I think the riff/guitar work is a bit too generic/faceless (chug-ish) in places, but Nails gets it done competently.
Call of the Void sort of has the same guitar tone, but it’s slightly more memorable and bit more grind, a bit tighter than Nails, but a just notch less heavy and harsh. Both bands just sound angry, though. Call of the Void’s “Dragged down a Dead End Path” does not take long to get to the point, either.
The new jack “brutal” anger of the above bands is a different feeling when channeled by a bunch of old punks like Suicidal Tendencies and their album “13,” whose attitude comes across as wiseacre and sarcastic rock n roll. Suicidal in 2013 is less thrash and more punk and even more rock n roll than some of their popular songs. This guitar tone is a 70s and 80s sound, not the “groove and brutal” sound. www.suicidaltendencies.com www.facebook.com/CalloftheVoid303 www.southernlord.com www.suicidaltendencies.com www.facebook.com/CalloftheVoid303 www.southernlord.com
