Wide Shut-Expose EP review.
Wide Shut is a crushing metallic hardcore band from Toulouse, France. And rest assured if you haven't heard of them, this writer was the same. But get familiar because this band has certainly hit their straps on this debut EP. If metallic and exceptionally heavy hardcore is your fave genre, you'll love Wide Shut.
This band has only existed since 2017, but this release shows advanced skills and riffs that the writer would expect from seasoned veterans only. It's crushing hardcore that I would suggest is beat-down influenced, but the sound is so much more than that. I hear everything from Hoods, Blood for Blood and straight-up death metal at times.
Highlights: The entire EP is utterly solid as hell, but for me, the final two tracks stuck in my ears for days-Erase and Vega.
