The Holy Mountain-Entrails

The Holy Mountain
No Idea Records

I have heard a lot of hype for this band lately. Some people say they sound like Tragedy, others say they are pretty cheesy. While the influence of bands like Tragedy is apparent, Entrails really fails to catch my interest. The attempt at what Tragedy is doing is apparent: this is crusty sounding hardcore but it is so catchy and poppy that any rage it has is totally deflated. There are even segway tracks like Tragedy has. Entrails is too poppy and instead of reminding me of bands like Born Against or Anti Cimex, this reminds me of American Nightmare and Modern Life Is War more. This is more like amazingcrustcore, if you get my drift. I’d pass on this.
