Lumbering, screeching sounds from members of Chemiplastica, Gay Mayor, Dirt Devil, and Rogue Trooper. Demo is out on GUT FREAK. HARDWARE play a brand of power violence (flower violence) that sounds to me based more in the looseness of punk than the usual grind of 21st century power violence. There’s definitely a crust vibe happening, but this thing that HARDWARE have created is dripping very heavy.
Songs get as short as 19 seconds, and as long as 1:29. “Shit Mouth” is the one coming in @ 1:23. A chugging nightmare, the lead guitar is menacing here in a vaguely Middle Eastern manner. The front woman’s squeal is evil, and the whole band is just the dose of heavy I need right now. W. Mass does it again.
