Chicago’s Harm’s Way are no stranger to heavy music yet for those of you who forgot, there is now the “Blinded” EP. “Frontal Lobe” gets things going with an eerie riff and a creepy spoken word sample before exploding into a barrage of raw as fuck riffs, scathing vocals and drums that will rattle the fillings out of your teeth.
Even more so than before, these guys break free from the hardcore mold by injecting their material with lots of death and grind influences. Basically anything that’s extreme is welcomed with open arms. The title track is an instrumental one and while it starts off quiet enough, it turns into one massive riff that is the perfect soundtrack for skinning a deer. I have no idea what that last part is about but it just seemed kinda fitting.
