The “My Hell” side of this record(which is the Ohio side, the Puffy Areola’s side) is not for everyone, but those who enjoy it will inevitably end up infatuated. The vocals are a mere undertone to the guttural, soulful wrenching of the guitar. Eventually the voices slowly fade out and give way to severe shredding. The music is a deep and lonely howl. The song ends serenely and suddenly; the entire song is a relentless eight minute trip into the mind of acid rock. “Walking Down The Street” is the B-side from Philadelphia’s Purling Hiss, and would be the more composed sibling of the first song. The vocals are discernible, the guitars bray in time to the drums, it’s a good sound that is underlined with a classic rock vibe. Both are a great tasters for these bands. The split 12’’ was released on Record Store Day.
