Turk Street

This is the first release from Bay-Area band KowloonWalledCity entitled 'TurkStreet'. These guys are reminiscent of 'WordAsLaw' era Neurosis. Its crushing mid tempo sludge, with a very hardcore feel to it. These guys actually contacted me and were woundering if i would do a review of their release. In the e-mail they directed me to their website were they give you the option to download the album for free or purchase it. When i saw this i thought to myself that is totally awesome that a band would do that, and after giving the EP a good listen, i placed my order for the 10" and can't wait to get my grubby little hands on it. Every track on the Ep is relentless and full of angst and power, like a run away train coming to a screeching and grinding halt. So ya, if you are waiting for some good sludgyness stained with a lil' Hardcore here is your chance to be the first on your block to own this badboy.
You can download/Purchase it from the band Here
Or Download it from me Here
Either way if you find yourself moved by these tracks you could always say Thank You by supporting the band with a purchase.
