Atavistic

Atavistic were a little known UK anarcho-crust band from Kent who released two great 7" EPs and a somewhat forgettable LP before calling it quits in 1991. Here is the second of those EPs titled Equilibrium, it was released in 1988. This is like Amebix taken to its noisiest extreme. Quite pummeling and dark. One of my favorite little records from that nebulous time between hardcore and post-hardcore.

I tend to dislike poliicoren but I do like Amebix, so say that there was a similarity made me want to download and listen. And hey, there are even the Lemmy-esque vocals like in Amebix. Swell stuff!
