The Haggard

No Future

Mr. Lady

Strange mix of riot grrl death metal and pussy galore trash rock tied into a very garage stained vein. Guttural vocals mixing with lo-fi female speaking shouting singing. Angry songs, guitar overdriving like a highway looking for roadkill, and you’re just a speed bump. Most songs are at the most two minutes long, which can be good, but sometimes it’s like they end just as you begin to understand what’s going on. The drums crack through the songs and your head almost explodes as you listen to the sounds of chaos. The ending comes in the form of a hidden track, about six minutes long, that moves a bit mellower, and shows a different side to the rock, leaving you breathing a bit slower, letting you come down easy.
