Jackals: Violence Is... 7"
2nd 7" from this highly underrated hardcore band from the UK. This is heavy, tough and very mean... while there's a definite early 80s vibe, I feel like the more fitting reference point is the best stuff from the tougher end of late 80s / early 90s hardcore... things like the almighty Confront, a less metal version of early Integrity, etc. A lot of bands in that style tend to go for a really clean, metal-type production, but this is raw and nasty, which is where that early 80s angle tends to come in. I imagine that someone into say, No Tolerance or the Flex would get a lot of mileage out of this one.
