Bastions – ‘Bedfellows Part One: The Bastard Son’ EP

BastionsBastions are a four-piece band who play unmerciless, in-your-face, hardcore which pulls very few punches and has even less pretensions in its ambition – which is to drive a hole straight through your chest, up through your neck (with the objective of getting this particular part of your anatomy snapping as violently as possible) into your brain, with the intention of turning that to mush before drilling its way out the back of your atomized skull.

And they pretty much succeed.  Even quiet moments such as brooding closer ‘Amongst Crows’ are brutally effective in their restrained sense of ultraviolence.

Magnificently effective.
