2nd EP from this ripping Pittsburgh hardcore band.
Our take: As the title indicates, this is the second 7” from Pittsburgh’s Chiller. If you picked up their previous record, you’ll be pleased to hear the sound is similar, blending various sub-strains of hardcore into a sound that feels fresh and authentic. There’s the hyper-fast “Remonstration,” the big breakdown of “Final Names,” and the Pick Your King-esque “Whistler.” It’s uncommon for hardcore bands these days to mix things up so much, but the warm production and catchy, oi!-tinged vocals (which still sound like Damian from Fucked Up) hold it all together. I also love how all of Chiller’s releases have a similar visual aesthetic, begging you to catch ‘em all.
