Rigorous Institution – “Penitent” 7″

Following the release of their 2018 demo tape, Portland’s Rigorous Institution return with their debut EP Penitent. Gloomy anarcho-grind that pays homage to 80’s UK filth-core, (by which I mean Axegrinder, Deviated Instinct, Zygote and Amebix). A multi-layered sound, with a dramatic synth buried in the mix that adds to the atmosphere of fraught doom and apocalyptic menace. Remind yourself of the first two Amebix 7″s to get a sense of the malevolence and desperation of this 7″; and then – because this sounds far from old school or dated – add a load of modern day blackened punk.
