Nearly inhuman levels of rage and power from Seattle's newest noise punk outfit featuring Madam KJ on (first time ever!) vocal shredding duty. Ferocious styles to say the least. LEXICON stalks like a newly liberated beast and pummels your senses to dust. Proper shit.
Our take: Demo tape from this new band out of Seattle, and even though it’s billed as a demo this is already up to the high standard of quality we’ve come to expect from Iron Lung. I hear elements of d-beat, Blazing Eye-style fast pogo-punk, and more straightforward US hardcore (including some big mid-paced mosh parts), but Lexicon synthesize and streamline these influences into a cohesive and powerful sound. Highlights include the ripping, noisy guitar solo on “Rats,” the Minor Threat-ish “Nuclear Winter,” and the catchy chorus of the closing track “Isolation,” but there isn’t a wasted moment. A top-notch hardcore demo.
