Manchurian Candidates / Hawg Jaw
Split 7" (Deep Six Records)

By: Jeb Branin

I don't recall having heard MANCHURIAN CANDIDATES before hearing this split but I know for a fact I will be on the lookout for more of their noise! Their music is a devastating amalgamation of speed and heaviness. Imagine the chest collapsing wallop delivered by bands like CAVITY and now imagine it played with the throttle open all the way! Not really grindcore but certainly that intense. I'm all over this! HAWG JAW are the perfect band to team up with M.C. on a split. They are just as heavy and powerful so their sounds are complimentary but HAWG JAW aren't as breakneck which prevents them from sounding so much like M.C. as to be indistinguishable.
