Thrashing guitars and head banging beats for your mental
Herefordshire UK based bank Skinhorse has released their latest Fuzz Rock EP. It’s dark, it’s loud, and it has a lot going on. The band has a near flawless grasp on the Fuzz Rock genre, and their latest EP will appeal to fans of this type of music. Although many might not be a fan of the genre, one can appreciate Skinhorse’s effort on their latest.
“Hexte” is a song featuring lots of loud guitars and great instrumentation. The song is very short–just a little over two minutes– but a lot is jam-packed into those couple of minutes. It is evident that these are very talented and skilled musicians. The song does sound a tiny bit dated, but it’s nothing that is too distracting from the good music. “Five Bowl Champion” is a faster-tempo song with, again, loud guitars and drums. This song is very similar to the first– lots of instrumentation and very short in length. It’s an enjoyable song– one can picture it playing during an action scene in a Guy Ritchie movie (ha-ha)! There is more of the same on the last track, “End Expanded.” Longer in length and featuring great guitar and instrumentation, this song has more noise/fuzz/distortion than the other two songs. This particular song rings more true to the classic elements of the genre, and the band pulls it off well.
Skinhorse is a band with lots of talent, and they have a great grasp on the Fuzz Rock niche. Their latest EP features songs with great instrumentation and are enjoyable to listen to! Go check it out on their bandcamp page. Enjoy and Rock On!
