I’ve slept on this pretty hard, as it was released exactly a week ago. BUT, tis better to mosh now than to have never moshed at all.
When Reading, PA’s Black Crown Initiate released Song of the Crippled Bull last year, they were riding high on the hype train. When I first heard it I just couldn’t get into it. Something about it just didn’t click with me for some reason. A few months later, the intro to “The Stench of the Iron Age” was constantly getting stuck in my head and I decided to throw on the EP. What the heck was wrong with me when it came out?? This band shreds.
