Black AnvilHail Death

★★★☆ Push past the first impression of a lo-fi hardcore recording from the 90s, and you’ll be rewarded for listening to this album with a surprising range of moods and tempos. At times doomy, at times thrashy, it all works somehow, and makes for an engaging and energetic work that sounds a little like a whole bunch of other familiar bands… and yet at the same time, not quite like anything you’ve ever heard before.
