Every now and again, something pops up in our inbox that gets me absolutely fucking stoked, and the most recent culprit would happen to have been delivered by doom/metal/hardcore outfit Civilian with their debut 4-song EP No Blood, Clean Exit.
At first listen, I’m reminded of Jane Doe-era Converge, as the drums are expertly spastic and the guitar riffs have a demented feel that could only have been conceived somewhere south of Heaven. Vocally, Paul Chenault takes more of a controlled, shouting approach that fits in well with an otherwise chaotic rhythm section.
As of right now, this EP is only available as a digital download and we’re unsure if this is going to have some sort of physical release as well, but if and when that does happen, we’ll let ya know.
