Something heavy is going down in Massachusetts according to the four-track split disc from Bostonís Western Syndrome and Lunglust. Despite both bands sharing the same drummer, each act demonstrates its own version of hardcore metal in the year 2012. Western Syndrome strikes first with two frantic grind tracks clocking in a little over three minutes with a screeching female vocal accentuating the spastic chaos the band unleashes. Western Syndrome follows next with two longer, doomier, and denser cuts, channeling the sinister side of the metal spectrum with a beefy Isis meets Mastodon aura. As an added bonus, material from a third band that shares the same drummer but is now defunct is tacked on as bonus material when downloaded, truly giving the listener a trifecta of carnage to absorb. -Mike SOS
