HELLSPIKE - Dynasties Of Decay LP (Black Vinyl)
Regular price €17.99
Some albums try to reinvent the wheel, this one is content to simply improve upon an existing blueprint and comes out with something so fiery and fun that it feels completely original in spite of its clearly derivative nature. Enthusiasm and competency can often stand in the place of originality, and even with these three newcomers to the scene excelling to a fault in the former 2 departments, they prove to not be wholly bereft of the latter. Between the old school sensibilities and the highly belligerent presentation in which they are juxtaposed, this is an album that all but screams that bigger and better things are coming. It's unclear as to whether 2022 will see this band pull a hat trick in the studio LP release department, but even if a longer wait is in the cards, it will clearly be worth it.
