Massappeal bar of life

MASSAPPEAL -- “Bar of Life” EP

My favorite Aussie band has put out one amazing place of wax. Incredibly fast thrash – but not HERESY blender-core. They have an excellent musical style, with great vocals, a surprisingly pleasant guitar (it doesn’t cut through your skin like other bands of this genre), and an incredible rhythm section. “Fun Again” is done 1000 times better than they’ve recorded it before. Fantastic. The flipside, “Are You Alright?”, is almost as good, but can’t quite match up to the other tune. MASSAPPEAL is a hot band, and if they keep getting as popular as they have been, you’ll be hearing more from them soon. Get this EP! (Waterfront Recs.) [MICKEY]
