Heavy Medical

Review by Brayden Bagnall

Genre/s: Noise Rock, Hardcore
For Fans Of: Karp, Zeus!, Sexgender, Some Girls, Slavestate 614A

Some of you may already be privy to this release thanks to me accidentally linking this to the Lana Degales discography post instead of, you know, the actual file. If that's the case, enjoy some context to that file (or if not, ignore this completely and move to the next paragraph).
Heavy Medical are a three piece drum and bass noise rock outfit from Philadelphia, USA. With two drummers and a heavily overdriven bass the trio play tight, rhythmic riffs topped off with delayed vocals and frequent stabs of feedback. Thanks to the ever prominent, sludgy bass tone, this self titled tape lives up to the band's namesake delivering a barrage of heavy, uncompromising tunes. At times Heavy Medical remind of a 31G band covered in a thick layer of ooze and concrete and at others they sound like they could be one of Rhode Island's many weirdo noise rock acts covering Karp - all with their own distinct, groovy spin on the resulting chaos. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you haven't already blundered onto them thanks to one of my previous posts.
