Chickenhawk – A. Or Not? [Brew Records]

The follow up EP to the blistering debut self-titled album is here and it’s going to beat the living shit out of you or chase you round like a demented zombie at the very least, just see the video for proof of that. On ‘A. Or Not?’ we get three rip roaring slices of all out hardcore punk rocking attitude with plenty of hooks and heavy riffs, you know just the way we like it.

Opening track ‘I Hate This, Do You like It’ opens with schizo hyper discordant math guitar melodies before getting deep down low and dirty with the heavy chords, the drums pound and the vocals growl. They really remind me of Torche at times on this EP there is that heavy catchy Meanderthal thing going on. There’s so much energy here you just can’t help but nod your head, this shits infectious. ‘Son of Cern’ is anther brutally catchy number with scuzzy almost grunge like riffs and a breakdown that really brings the beast out in me. The twisting jarring riffs and pummelling drums really work well with the passionate vocal delivery. The low slung dirty grooves of ‘NASA Vs. ESA’ bring a grinding fuzzed out grizzly almost spaced out sound in the verses before ripping into some wicked double tracked vocal hooks in the chorus.

‘A. Or Not?’ just adds to the brilliance of the debut album, Chickenhawk rock like fuckers there is no doubt about it. This is a shot in the arm with pure primal energy if it doesn’t bring out the animal instinct in you even a little bit then I don’t know what to say.
