Gurt

At once, there’s a bluntly obvious nod to Pantera. DIYMCA, by Gurt has all those well known elements that make up that Pantera-esqe sound and style. That being said, there are, of course, unique qualities to this band that stand them apart. Overtly dissimilar…

Switchblade Jesus - S/T

Tejas. It’s been my experiences that not only can a person tell when shit is from Texas, but that Texans like it that way. Usually, it’s crap that’s real friggin’ big too. Giant steak platters, vast deserts, and a highway long enough to have…
