The Lungs / Total Massacre split 7"
The LUNGS are a new band to me, but I can absolutely dig what they’re laying down. Very BORN AGAINST-style, off-kilter hardcore with some weird tunings and tempo shifts and abstract lyrics, though a touch less heavy than the aforementioned band. TOTAL MASSACRE are a known commodity and they continue to be fucking great PIST / BRUTALLY FAMILIAR straightforward hardcore fucking punk with uncompromising, clever political lyrics and super catchy songwriting. Both sides are over a little quick, and I’m bummed that there’s no insert, but this is a super solid DIY split between two above-average punk bands.
