Again in April, two of the toughest social gathering bands in Indiana tag-teamed a break up EP accessible solely on cassette. The Mound Builders play an infectious mix of sludge and hardcore punk with large power and even larger riffs. We mentioned their ten yr anniversary just a few years in the past, so our pleasure about this break up isn’t any shock. Lucifist name themselves “Thrash from the Imply Streets of Lafayette.” They crawl from the identical social gathering punch bowl of influences as Municipal Waste. They’re all about most pace, enjoyable, and debauchery. Don’t let the Saint Anger echoes of the album artwork fear you. As a Double Dragon styled back-to-back bruiser of an break up, A Mound of Fists celebrates heavy metallic with punk’s scrappy DIY ethos. Tied along with an idea based mostly on ’70s martial arts motion pictures, it’s an eight-track round-house kick to your cranium.
Take heed to a observe from both sides of A Mound of Fists beneath, then scower the planet making an attempt to snag your private cassette copy.
The Mound Builders shut Aspect A with a killer cowl of the Butthole Surfers traditional “Who Was in my Room Final Evening?” Recorded in a basement throughout the pandemic, guitarist Brian Boszor highlights the observe’s riffy hook. In the meantime, frontman Jim Voelz conjures pre-solo profession Rob Zombie with a dirty efficiency. It’s an ideal, rollicking providing with a helluva guitar tone.
Lucifist recorded these tracks after releasing their Goat Slaying Satan Occasion Music Vol.666 album in 2020. “Get Fucked Up!” closes Aspect B of A Mound of Fists with an exuberant invitation to drink aggressively and excessively. The band earns the exclamation level within the title with their profanely enthusiastic social gathering thrash. It’s a name to motion, so pound the closest heat can of swill and get your evening pumping.
