Detonate. After a promising split MCD with the equally lacerating Luddite Clone last year, Burnt By the Sun offer up their eponymous debut EP for mind-mangled approval. And, seriously, few other adjectives can do Burnt By the Sun justice like “detonate.” Featuring ex-members of the late, great Human Remains and Discordance Axis as well as Endeavor, it makes perfect sense that BBTS’s noisecore places equal emphasis on grind, hardcore, and free jazz alike, but with their EP at a mere four songs in eight-and-a-half minutes, it’s difficult to discern whether the quartet could yet usurp The Dillinger Escape Plan’s crown. Still, bands like this are few in number right now, and above all, essential to metal’s malevolent evolution. “You Will Move,” indeed.
