Rising hardcore band, TRASH TALK, keep on rising with their latest Awake. This EP is just five songs of high energy, high aggression hardcore.
The title track opens the release with a mean edge, which quickly kicks into the fast(er) and shorter “Slander” and its d-beats. “Blind Evolution” has a strong driving beat and riffing keeping the action going strong, which eases off the gas towards the end. “Burn Alive” sounds like vintage BLACK FLAG and has catchy vocal lines. Closing track, “Gimme Shelter,” continues with the classic hardcore vibe.
Awake is an energetic EP which clocks in at under 10 minutes. The band don’t hang around longer than needed and do what they came to do, which is to jam out some cool songs. (True Panther Sounds)
