Heat's debut 7" is a hellish, whirlwind onslaught of ultracore agony. It would be easy to just name-check the cult HC groups of yore who make up Heat's primary influences - Neanderthal, Citizens Arrest, Impact Unit, Crossed Out, etc. - but these San Diego, CA, insurgents aren't content simply paying homage; they're taking their savage influences and pushing the aural torment into a refreshing, self-stylized direction. Whether full-tilt blasting, stomping at a mid-pace, or trudging through a dirge, there's a natural fluidity and cohesion to Heat's under-a-minute nuclear reactions that belie the group's intensity. Simply put, any fan of extreme hardcore will revel in Heat's burly, mutant approach. 7" includes digital download.
