Soul Swallower-Self Titled

Soul Swallower
Collapse Records

Holy shit! Over the summer I kept hearing about a project members of, amongst others, Mind Eraser had going called Soul Swallower. A friend who saw them live described them as “Mind Eraser, only better.” With these very high expectations I knew I had to hear this. Thankfully our friend Bob Shedd put this out on Collapse. Soul Swallower are similar to Mind Eraser but have a bit more of an influence from bands like Integrity, Citizens Arrest, and No Comment. To the layman, I’m sure both bands will sound similar, but there is enough distinction between both projects to justify their existence. After having heard a practice tape where they cover Youth Of Today I can hear a bit of that influence also. This is a great, must have, record and another great one from Collapse.
