Hugs + Drugs (Monarchy Music)

By: Mike SOS

Unlike many of the Southern California acts you hear, the five guys that comprise Loftus play the kind of face-ripping, unrepentant anguished music you'd expect from an East Coast band like Converge or Dillinger Escape Plan. On the 10-track Hugs + Drugs, piledriven riffs and unrelenting screams are commonplace, yet when woven inside the heavy melodies found on "Bottoms Up" and "Gimme Greens", unleashed are the lethal forms of aural violence that heavy music fans have grown fond of. Ignore the almost five-minute serene opener "The Condition of Being Forgotten" and wear your earplugs in preparation for an onslaught of epic proportions, courtesy of Loftus.
