Busted Outlook - 2015 - Spitting Wind

Busted Outlook is a five piece hardcore punk band from California. Spitting Wind is their first official release after the Plague Hoarder demo. Members have also played in Disgust, Hostile Takeover, Sourpatch, Permanent Ruin, Ex-Effluxus and Scalped. This EP was recorded at the Atomic Garden by Jack Shirley and mastered at Dead Air Studios by Will Killingsworth. Busted Outlook play a riff focused brand of metallic hardcore. The dual guitars are usually locked in sync hammering the riff down into your head until one occasionally veers off for a wild solo.

The singer has a excellent mid-range shout with which he demonstrates his disgust vividly. There is no fat on this record at all, these songs explode into existent, pummel the riff into the concrete and move out of the way for the next angry slab of hardcore. If you're looking for some Bay Area metallic hardcore to instigate your next round of angry moshing, Busted Outlook's Spitting Wind will serve well.
