For Nothing

So, Matt, my friend who was kind enough to trade me Extortion's - "Terminal Cancer" 7", is also in a stupidly good bass/drum powerviolence band called Water Torture, who just released their 2nd EP, "Shellfire!" on Diseased Audio Records. Black vinyl, 45 RPM.

I was a huge fan of their "S/T" EP they released last year, and this new one is by far one of the best things I've heard all year. Unforgiving, heavy powerviolence, you can't fuck with this! The recording is much better than their last EP, the bass tone is a lot less murky and more cut-throat and bright. The songs are fast for the most part, but when they break it down to the slow and sludgy, it's punishing. Some noise and power electronics are thrown in for good measure. 

Great cardstock sleeve with a double-sided insert. 

The first 25 pre-orders got this sick back patch, which will be sewn on my hoodie very soon. Get wise to Water Torture right now.
