Crusty hardcore kids Baptists are back with a record of chaotic punk rock that tries to throw in as many riffs and rasped vocals as possible. 'Bloodmines', their second record, does a good job of using melody to clear out the clutter, continuing to show off the band's subtle post-hardcore and noise rock influences.
First of all, beautiful album art. Beacons of Faith is the third record from Baptists. Following pretty much the same sound as the bands' previous records, this is one that you don't want to miss. Atmospheric and apocalyptic, this record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and is released on Southern Lord.
Baptists drop their debut LP via Southern Lord. Bushcraft makes good on the promise shown by the Vancouver group on their self-titled debut EP. Produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, the tracks here tear out of the speakers with a ferocity similar to Drive Like Jehu’s best work. Bushcraft is punishing, invigorating stuff.
