Lavotchkin / Crocus
split CD
Klangverhaltnisse | Smalltown | We Heart
It seems that England is back on the map, concerning the hardcore related extreme kind of music. Tons of new bands and quality labels blossom constantly in the island. You have Throats, you have The Ghost Of A Thousand, Gallows, Rolo Tomassi, the whole Holy Roar roster, Brutality Will Prevail, Broken Teeth, Thirty Days Of Night label, Purgatory Records, and many many more...
This split between 2 of England's most promising new bands represents in the best way the modern metal / hardcore scene of the country.
Firstly we have Lavotchkin, an already established and well-known band from Northeast UK (Newcastle). They have released a couple of split 7"s (with Attack! Vipers! and Joseph) and 2 EPs.
Their style is modern hardcore with some metallic parts, influenced by The Hope Conspiracy, Rise & Fall, and even Darkest Hour (they toured with them last year, by the way). They offer 3 songs, counting around 10 minutes, of intense music. I really dig their style, awesome band.
On the other side, we have Crocus, a band from Falmout (I've no idea where this city is located...), that recently (to be precise, 5 days ago) suffered a lineup change, 2 of the members decided to leave the band. Crocus' music is more weird and complicated than Lavotchkin's. They are into Converge, Rorshach and the likes, with a lot of screamo parts in their music. I like them, too!
All in all, this is a very nice split that comes in a digipack case. You can purchase it from our distro.
