Arson Anthem's debut EP sounds like a shotgun blast to the face. However, that's exactly how it should sound. It's dirty, violent, brutal and utterly cathartic, like the classic raw punk and hardcore records it draws influence from. However, Arson Anthem puts a spin on the old Agnostic Front formula, and they inject a healthy dose of extreme metal. The underground super group features Phil Anselmo [Pantera, Down] on guitar, Mike Williams [Eyehategod] on the mic and Hank Williams III on drums. The riffs on "Doomed Morale" and "Wrecked Like Clockwork" come faster than a barrage of prizefight punches, while Williams' vocals channel Satan himself during "Sri Lankan Medication." One track, "Cops Shoot Coke," says it all, with a grimy gutter riff and drum combination. If anything, it's too short at under 15, but it's a beating well worth taking.
