Gazm – “Heavy Vibe Music” LP
A new-ish hardcore punk band from Montreal, Canada, with a fourteen track debut LP “that takes you from the grimy city streets, straight to the hell that lies beneath”. Flavours of 80’s thrash metal jive alongside NYHC grooves, it’s a hard one to define and pigeonhole. Tight, punchy and slightly unhinged (I think an indication of their direction is in their name: Gazm is a great-but-fucked-up moniker). Does anyone remember Sons Of Ishmael? Imagine them doing a modern-day take on crossover (a la Power Trip).
