Tracklist: Wartgore Hellsnicker - C+F=POW

The extraordinarily named Wartgore Hellsnicker, on a freedom ride from nowhere city Watford, are the next in Audio Antihero's series of EPs, all of them really quite different and unique so far. Alright, 'unique' in the stylistic sense might be pushing it here, the label calling it a "loveletter to Sub Pop 1988" for its centrifuge of pummelling riffs, charging purpose where there might otherwise be none and brass-bound edge of madness. Nowhere outside Mike Patton's nightmares do you usually hear gypsy folk trombone amid crashing distorted guitar waves, and the junkshop chorus at the end is quite something.
