Membrane -st 7"

This is raw, overdistoerted and primitive punk coming out of Oalkiand, California, United States: The band delivers six tracks of noise, This is the description by Byllepest Distro, thedistro/label that is going to release it as vinyl:
"Stripped of the self-righteous nature that usually contaminates too many raw-punk charged modern bands, Oakland's Membrane brings a ferocious mix of d-beat, stompy hardcore enveloped in a wall of distortion.
Membrane makes D-Beat more fun and catchier than it's been in a long time. Some tracks shine through with a general Disclose feel while a couple of their tunes break that formula by daring to rock the fuck out. Those songs highlight the faster ones to create a sense of completeness that few new raw punk EP's manage to capture.
Membrane might remind you of many other bands, while still remaining excitingly different. No matter if you're into Fight Back era Discharge, GAI or The Headcleaners, there is something here for you."
Two tracks are availalbe in bandcamp

Raw and primitive guitar sound, old school feeling, insane guitar solos coming from the '80s death metal era, three chord riffs and D-beat for the fast parts, metal edged guitar works for the slower and emotional and echo-ed shouted vocals. This is Metachrist from Canada who revive the '80's UK crust in their Final Bloody Master 5 track cassette. Many classic '80's and early '90's crust (and D-beat crust as well) bands are mentioned as their influences and the band managed to deliver an alloy that reeks  crust stench. Final Bloody Master delivers 2 fast and 3 mid-paced emotional tracks and 17 minutes of old school stenchcore crust.
