WAR//PLAGUE - Smolder EP (2010)

The debut 7" from this great Crust band built around the guitar heroes Andy Lutz and Andy Lefton (the potent combo at the core of Provoked and Pontius Pilate) joined by fellow Minneapolis crust punk veterans. The two songs on this debut EP are classic crust punk to the core, with lots of variation, powerful riffs, rasp throated vocals, and production that´s heavy but not overly polished. This is Minneapolis style crust (i.e. Misery) so its devoid of the boring "epic" parts that sap the energy of so many other current crust bands. Best of all, the members of War//Plague are among the most artistically gifted and long-time contributors to the local DIY punk movement. Recommended!
