Black Widows

Black Widows

Stops a Beating Heart


Seven songs. Thirteen minutes. God bless hardcore.

Raging full on, kind of like old Black Flag, Black Widows play hardcore the only way it should be played. Anti-establishment lyrics shouted with a throat lacerating scream, high octane churning power chords and a pumping rhythm section undergird the whole edifice. Listening to this CD, I envision nitro-burning funny cars, careening out of control.

If you dig hardcore, you’ll like this album. Nothing here too earth-shattering, more of a by the numbers affair. Still, perfect mood music for ripping the blooming buds off your neighbor’s prize winning rose garden. Excuse me now, I think I’ll go destroy something.
