Wetbrain - Vacant Life
Review by Brayden Bagnall
Genre/s: Hardcore, Noise Rock
For Fans Of: White Wards, Gag, Slavescene, Hoax, Guttergods, Nudes
Wetbrain are a relatively new band out of Seattle, Washington and if their demo and this three track EP are anything to go by - they're gonna be a band to watch out for.
Wetbrain play super blown out, noisy hardcore with an unhealthy amount of chorus piled onto the guitars and feedback forced into the mix. It's a dangerous concoction of raw punk aggression and strung out noise, with the washed out vocals hovering in the background creating a pretty uneasy, distant effect.
If you've been digging the multitudes of dark, fucked up hardcore that's been coming out of the states in recent years, you'll more than likely love this. And be sure to visit the band's blog here to keep up with any new releases, shows and to check out their demo.
