The piss and vinegar of L7, the snarl of Kitty, the trippiness of Kylesa, and the brutality of a runaway train packed full of dynamite and peanut butter. Washington quartet Mercy Brown’s debut, self-titled LP is flat-out beastly. Teetering between sludgy riffs, punk rock attitude, shattering death metal, and psychedelic prog tendencies, this record really took me by surprise. The vitriol that pours from vocalist Sera Hatchett’s lungs inject so much personality into the already top-notch performance’s of her bandmates. Whether she’s crooning clean vocals or bellowing death growls, this girl is crushing someone’s skull into the ground while doing so.
Between memorable songwriting and diverse, engaging songs this is a record I wholly recommend you give your attention to and toss some couch change to. Give it a listen and let me know what you thunk. Enjoy!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!!!
