Slices 'Still Cruising'

Iron Lung (Kim Phuc, Total Control) offer up new album from Slices 'Still Cruising'. Mike Kasunic (Tusk Lord)/Bass, Mike Ovens/Drums, John Kasunic/Guitar and Greg Kamerdze/Vocals make up the four piece who are now on their second record. These ten songs clocking in at just over twenty minutes are a maelstrom of hardcore numbers fraught with pummeling beats, antagonistic vocals and fierce guitars summoning bouts of stir-crazed punk rock. In amongst the carnage there are curious interjections of quieted instrumental sections like on "Forever Cruising/Hurt On The Job" acting as a pallet cleanser before the stampede continues. Personal highlight is "Class Time", a riotous air punching track with swarming guitars, palpitating rhythms and howling vocals. 'Still Cruising' is the perfect soundtrack to stave off daily doldrums, another great hardcore record from Pittsburgh.
