Blood for Blood
Livin’ in Exile
Boston hardcore and Motorhead-inspired trash n’ roll may seem like odd bedfellows, but Blood for Blood does a bang-up job of ramming both headlong into each other — and I stress ramming , because the line between weightlifting roughneckism and white trash roughneckism is totally blurred here. Granted, the band’s demographic may be pretty marginal, but if you’re voyeuristically seeking the smell of blood, guts, puke, and testosterone, Livin’ in Exile will justly make your head woozy.
