FUCK YEAH!!! From San Diego, The Locust dish out intense thrashy hardcore highlighted by a noisy synth that sounds like a raygun or raunched out disintegrating FM synth. I saw them live once, but the synth was down in the mix, so they sounded like just another (tight) hardcore band, but with the synth up it's a unique sound. Songs are less than a minute, assaulting with lots of changes. Think also of Lightning Bolt, Neon Hunk, Pink and Brown. All good, but standouts were 11, 13, 19, 3, 4, 7, 8. |
