Augurs - Old Ways EP

'Old Ways'

Review by Brayden Bagnall

Genre/s: Grindcore, Sludge, Hardcore, Doom
For Fans Of: Admiral Angry, Black Sheep Wall, Dead In The Dirt, Seven Sisters Of Sleep

Imagine, if you will, being crushed by a shipping container full of anvils. Got that? Good. Because you'll need that coming into this EP. Augurs are a four piece band from Oakland, California who are producing some music of considerable heft.  Augurs have taken the best out of multiple genres (D-beats, hardcore breakdowns, doom riffs, sludgy feedback) and smooshing them into the gnarly beast that is this release. Old Ways is a criminally short EP, and with only three tracks it will leave you wanting more, so here's hoping Augurs keep the good stuff coming in 2014.

1. Drunk
2. Idolarty
3. Old Ways
