Enabler - Shift Of Redemption EP

Enabler are back with this 4 track EP and straight away show
why they are one of hardcores brightest hopes.

They seemed to have refined their sound - things are heavier,
sharper and if it is possible, more frantic than ever. 

The bass now sounds like Lemmy shooting his love juice into
a fuzz box with the resulting offspring being raised by riff
loving Satanists who worship at the Altar of Bowel Disturbance. 
This pins down the razor sharp drumming which has a frenetic
pace but still retains a really powerful sound.

The guitars combine hardcore, crust and some metallic elements
which give an unstoppable sound that just gives these songs
a vitality and urgency sometimes missing in this genre.

The vocals are a devastating blend of growls, yelps and screams
and these are used to great effect on "Live Low" - the chorus
of "Fuck you and fuck you and fuck you forever" has stuck in my
head and I now find myself muttering this under my breath as I make
my way to work at the wage slave factory.

Highly recommended!

Band blurb:

The next step in ENABLER’s ever-evolving explosiveness delivers in every respect, their body-ravaging hatred and a dispirited outlook on life delivered through swift and brutal hooks that infectious as Ebola on Shift Of Redemption due out on April 9th via Think Fast! Records. Following their Southern Lord released All Hail The Void LP, Shift of Redemption features four brand new tracks from the Brew City killers, and showcases the band expanding their infectious sonic violence into new territory. Recorded by Shane Hotchstetler at Howl Street Recordings, mixed by Chris Common (Pelican, These Arms Are Snakes), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Sleep, High on Fire), Think Fast! Will release the EP via digital download and 7”; the first pressing limited to 1,000 copies, with 350 copies pressed on gold wax and 650 on clear.
