about

This split was released digitally at the end of 2019 and is seeing a physical tape release via New Morality Zine and Tiny God Inc. The sound of the bands is quite different, but works well together in harmony, which makes sense because this split comes after the two bands shared the road together in the Summer of 2019.

Porcupine kicks off the split, with their best and most concise material to date. Their chaotic sound from past releases is harnessed and used in bursts, making their melodic moments even more powerful. They seem to take influence from late 90s to early 00s melodic hardcore and metal core like Converge and The Hope Conspiracy, and pull it off in their own way. They keep it fresh with various vocal stylings, dynamic changes, and non-corny mosh parts. The two songs ‘Fawn’ and ‘Wedlock’ both begin with samples and flow into each other seamlessly.

Prouns kicks off their side with ‘Blue’, which was featured on their 2019 Summer Tour Promo as well. This song features a lot of what Prouns does best, stompy bits with distant yet catchy vocals. The New York three piece battles with itself through a jagged rhythmic groove, giving way to unexpected relief until the song is over and leads directly into ‘Running in Place’. This is a quicker song that teases at a more hardcore feel, until the halfway point, where the songs builds to a catchy and chunky peak. This band does a great job of blending the various edges of classic emotional rock, I hear bits of Quicksand, Handsome, Silent Majority, and Jazz June in there.

This split breezes by at 9 minutes and has a little something for anyone who enjoys passionate & aggressive music. -MB
