No surprises this is a BDHW release, which dropped in April, but it warrants a place on this zine. Here are seven tracks of sheer heavy beatdown hardcore that mean business.
The production is great and live I am sure these tracks would translate even better. The issue with any beatdown band is they really need to stand out from the pack, simply because like any specific genre; there is too many soundalikes.
Like DCA which I recently reviewed, the key will be how the progression occurs and the future direction. BDHW release some cracking artists, but also a ton of average artists at the same time. This is not being disrespectful, just factual.
World of Pain excel at tracks like: Apocalypse Now and Burden. These literally feel like the song is physically assaulting you with a sledgehammer. 4 out of five semi trailers running over you.
