It’s always lulzy when Euros emulate American stuff, especially when it’s American tough-guy hardcore. The cutest part is when they cluelessly worship something that, to Americans, is considered a retarded laughingstock.
For example, this band WARHOUND, who shamelessly appropriate the cover art from Biohazard’s 1992 lolfactory “Urban Discipline.” I won’t lie, that record has some sweet riffing, but I remember it mostly for how in the “Punishment” video, the guitarist spun around in circles and wore a leather jacket that looked like something you would see on a gyro vendor in Long Island City.
However, I do have to give them bonus points for being the first band I am aware of to “pay tribute” to one of my favorite 90s mosh bands EXCESSIVE FORCE! Check out the little natural harmonic thing the guitars do at :18 in the Warhound song, and compare to E Force’s moshcore classic “In Your Blood”– so stoked that I am apparently not the only person who worships at the altar of EXCESSIVE FORCE!
