Safe and Sound – Ashes Lie and Wait 7” (New Age Records)

If the members of Grief*, 16 and NoMeansNo dropped everything that they were doing and formed a band whose sole objective was to be heavier than the core of a collapsing dwarf star, then their output would follow a similar trajectory to Safe and Sound. Ashes Lie and Wait offers two tracks of eclectic, brutal, weight driven Hardcore that’s as emotionally intense as it is musically ferocious. Uncompromising, forthright and savage, Safe and Sound are the band that your parents warned you about…  Tim Cundle

*Yeah, I know they split up nearly two decades ago, but to me, it was like it happened yesterday.  It’s still a sore subject
