Kassel, Germany meets California on this pairing of hardcore heavyweights. Each band offers two full-on bruisers packed onto the grooves of this EP. Starting with German old schoolers Ryker’s, their songs bounce along with the moshpit in mind. Heavy without being metal and packing a real punch with the gang vocal back-ups.
Over the other side of the ocean, The Eulogy feature ex- members of Madball and Ignite (amongst many more) in their ranks, so a pedigree that suits Ryker’s perfectly. They take in the classic hardcore style of the likes of Madball, SOIA or Terror, with a huge guitar sound and plenty of groove. A surprise is a cover of the Agent Orange classic “Bloodstains”, and it works a treat as The Eulogy really make this their own.
