Northwest Massive Aggressive!
A split from two rising Northwest bands. The angular post-hardcore noise of Seattle's BALSA combines aggressive guitar-driven bursts and themes of perserverance in three tracks of AmRep-inspired dueling riffs hinting at a metalized Jesus Lizard, recorded by Tad Doyle (TAD, Brother of the Sonic Cloth).
Portland's SEI HEXE bring harsh brutality with pummeling angst. The intense all-female band channels darkness and nature with mind-shredding vocals and dense compositions evoking a blackened Babes in Toyland.
