Drugs of Faith – S/T EP

Drugs of Faith

DC-grind mastermind Richard Johnson returns with Drugs of Faith, his new band that doesn’t really sound like anybody. The blast beats are the only components of this self-titled EP that sound similar to Johnson’s old band Enemy Soil. This record has a healthy hardcore vibe to it. Its furious blasts of noise are accompanied by some kick-ass rock-n-roll. Not in a cheesy Aerosmith way but in the same sense that Husker Du was rock-n-roll. The song “No Sense of Occasion” even has a Kylesa/Neurosis-sounding riff. The bass tone reminds me of Man is the Bastard. This EP is bleak and depressing. Recommended for fans of Siege, Godflesh, Eyehategod and good taste.
