By The Throat- Riders of Boards
Release date: 2011Oct08
By The Throat hail from Boston and consist of Sean “The Muscle” on guitar, Chris Brat on bass, Chris Dimwit on durms and Niff on vox and guitar. Think of old school skate punk/hardcore and this is what you’ll get. “Rider of Boards” transports me back to 1984 with aggressive hardcore punk that brings to mind Murphy’s Law, The Freeze and a bit of Minor Threat. Great way to start this EP! “Indian Summer Revenge” is equally catchy and I’m catching an Econochrist vibe, mainly in the pacing and urgency of this track. I certainly want to crack some heads in a pit. “Status Quo” is short and catchy and it leads into “Inflicted” (another excellent track!). In all, I cannot gush enough about the rawness of this EP. Check it out if you’re looking for punk and hardcore that isn’t a rehash from Fat Wreck Chords!
