Filthy Charity start with a feedback induced intro that lulls one into a sense of comfort before the power violence comes pouring out of the speakers. Mile a minute drums combat with blast driven guitar work. Shouted vocals mixed with chicken screams, before the first song unexpectedly ends. The second song starts again with a relatively long calming intro, before blasting back into the aforementioned formula. From The Filth of Your Charity is a slowish song, with a big guitar sound and much better production than the rest of the songs. Infact, the production for the FILTHY CHARITY side mostly seems like they used one microphone and recorded in their basement. Crust as fuck & DIY!
The Butcher Project is much more streetpunk influenced and better produced. Drums are much more in the mix, as are the vocals. Chorus parts exhibit the whole band singing along to melodies, and the guitar has a much meatier tone. This band is a lot like a bunch of other street punk / oi bands that I’m sure you’ve heard. Dual vocals on some songs, band melodic sing alongs on chorus parts including “whoa!”, rock steady drums, and good guitar / bass tones. If you like bands like DEFIANCE, LCB, THE UNSEEN, etc, I’m sure you will like THE BUTCHER PROJECT.
5 songs from each band. Co-release on Enthropy, Abatos, and Neanderthal productions. Recorded April 2012.
