Something a little different, the new 4-way split 7", "Drawn And Quartered" from Bear Trap and Anti Venom from the US and our own Downpour and Shackles. Limited orange vinyl pressed by both the American and Australian branches of Arrest Records. I'd never really heard the American groups before I bought this, though I'd been told plenty of good things about Bear Trap. They live up to those good things. Rough, fast hardcore that takes obvious influence from modern and old PV kind of stuff. Anti Venom have a slightly more polished sound and feature two songs. Less blast beats and a singer that possesses a pretty destructive snarl. The Downpour stuff is previously unreleased. Four songs with a really lo-fi (maybe no-fi) recording. As some of you may know, I released this bands demo last year, and I preferred those songs. With a better recording, these songs would be killer. Shackles stuff is massive as always. Three songs (two of which are previously released, by me, on the "Dissolve To Nothing" tape) and a new one that they recorded during the sessions for said cassette.
