An absolutely phenomenal release by Portland, Oregon natives SLOTHS. This aggressive three piece has developed, over the past few years, a sound that many bands in this genre wish they could achieve. Knives is a three track one-sided 12″”. The songs range with influences from the early days of Hydra Head to the material Level Plane Records excelled with. To accurately describe this beast is to combine the ferocity of Botch with the emotional strain of Converge and add 90’s emotive hardcore. Congratulations, you have Knives.
