Heartattack #31 review:
Excitebike - Beak / Scoop / Bulge / Stretch / Slice / Add / Subtract CD EP

Emotional rock with a general midtempo range, melodic yet it stays interesting with heavier crashing parts and by not being simple. The vocals are mostly sung in a nice pretty voice, but there’s also some screams that show up every once in a while, which I thought was a nice touch to remind us that it’s still a hardcore record (as stupid as that sounds). I was impressed with the good guitar work – there were even some little solos, and my friend who actually plays guitar like the twangy string job on the slow parts (I can’t remember exactly what he said). The packaging looks very DIY, and the lyrics seem to be about…stuff. 5 songs at 18:21 or so. I’ve listened to this a lot lately, and I think it does good justice to the decent Nintendo game they are named after.


Excitebike – Beak / Scoop / Bulge / Stretch / Slice / Add / Subtract CD EP

Virginia emo-core with the perfect mix of melody and intensity. Members went on to play in Olde Ghost, Gregor Samsa, and The Silent Type.
