Anvils Drop "Death Worship" 7"Posted on Wednesday, May 19th, 2010 @ 6:34am » permalink
Anvils Drop is a hardcore/punk band from Finland that also features members of Lighthouse Project, Sixtus, and Scream for Change. I believe "Death Worship" is their first proper outing, released by the band along with Poolside Records. Expect a rugged recording with an appropriately harsh edge to it and a style that seems to combine influences from classic Finnish hardcore/punk as well as more "recent" metallic hardcore stylings. In addition to the standard dose of fast-paced power chords and screaming/shouting vocals throughout, there are a lot of subtly rocked out riffs that possess more of a catchy sense of energy, plus some crunchier breaks and lots of cool little dissonant riffs tucked away beneath the surface. As with most bands of this nature, they're not exactly trying to break new ground (which is fine with me), but they do wind up sounding different than most of the hardcore bands that I encounter from Finland. Four songs, about 12 minutes, and that's all there is to it. Here's a taste of what the band has to offer:
