Boxer – Undertow EP

Despite sharing an album title with my favorite Tool album, Boxer’s 5-song EP comes with a slightly different sound than Maynard & co. This Richmond, VA based band likes to churn out melodic hardcore punk tunes with gritty vocals that fit right in the city’s rich tradition of great tuneage.

It’s not all that different from what bands such as Title Fight or Such Gold are doing and it comes with dual vocals (one gritty, one more melodic), which always adds a little something extra when done well. And well they do even though it’s not entirely original. But fuck it, songs like “Anagram” and “20/20” are high on energy and made my day more enjoyable!

If you want the score the vinyl, you might have to hurry… there’s only 250 copies pressed on transparent deep purple with black haze and transparent kelly green with heavy black splatter
Score: 7 out of 10
