This is a review of a split ep between Minnesota's Buildings and Wisconsin's Volunteer which will be released in August by Triple Eye Industries and we will starts off the review with Buildings a band that plays a mixture of noise rock and punk.
Their side of the ep starts out with drum beats and a few seconds later melodic guitar leads are added onto t he recording along with some post hardcore style vocals and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile the music starts bringing in the heaviness of noise rock along with the energy of punk and the songs also stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Buildings area very great sounding mixture of noise rock and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Something Better" and "Snake".
Next up is Volunteer a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays noise rock.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy yet melodic sound while also mixing in elements of sludge and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to t hem and after awhile aggressive yet spoken vocals are added onto the recording and all of the songs stick to a very slow yet heavy musical style and when guitar leads are utilized they add more melody onto the recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Volunteer and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Walk".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and if you are a fan of noise rock, you should check out this ep. 8 out of 10.
