HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH / CHAINSAW TO THE FACE:
Split: 10"
I’m sure there’s some snickering going on over the names of both these bands. Rightfully so. But we’re not here to discuss band names. It’s about the music, maaaaannnn.... Hummingbird Of Death blast out thrash akin to bands 625 would release: blast beats galore, and a guitar that has a weird metal style whilst still playing 1,000 mph. Not bad, but I get the feeling the best is yet to come. Chainsaw To The Face is your standard powerviolence with a heavy influence from Crossed Out and No Comment. Listening to this makes me feel like I’m back in the Bay Area 1991 to 1995, before the bandwagon jumpers came around. Equally fast and heavy. The playing is tight, despite the blinding fast pace they keep. Their strength is when they shift from fast to mid tempo in songs. Gives character amid all the pummeling going on. “Crawl,” “I’ll Bury You,” and “Retardation” are the standouts. Wouldn’t mind hearing more from these guys. –Matt Average (Cowabunga)
