Following up their split LP with Wartorn, comes Pyroklast’s debut full length. Recorded in Madison and mastered by Jack Control (WB2D) at Enormous Door. 9 blasting hardcore cuts. Unrelenting speed, power and political awareness. Vocals that go beyond a typical hardcore guy yelling at you, but never cross into metal garbles. The drums never let up and the guitar offers some speedy RnR riffs. This reminded me of the Voorhees at times or maybe Nailed Down. Carrying the hardcore banner into the 21st century, holding true to traditions but keeping things modern. Pyroklast have members who have played in most Madison punk acts, Deep Shit, Discider, Whorelord, Murder of Crows, Panther, Systemic Torment, Hatekrusher and more if I thought about it harder. They’ve completed an east coast and 2 west coast tours as well as playing locally with, among others, DRI, MDC, The Restarts, The Casualties, Krang. Cover art by Halsey ‘Halseycaust’ Swain (Toxic Holocaust, Krang).
