The Chariot

Unsung EP

Furios screaming, lack of melody, tonnes of noise and countless breakdowns. That's The Chariot's "Unsung EP" in a nutshell for you. It consists of six songs so fierce, that they make Norma Jean sound like they've just been released from kindergarden.

The production level is as high as it gets with hardcore. The screams are brutal and noisy, and the rare guitar melodies are easy to identify from the whole mash of noise, noise and more noise. They must have sat down in the studio and said each other: "Lets tear apart the ears from anyone who dares to listen to our stuff".

Jaw-dropping breakdowns and ear-shattering noisecore combined results in an EP only suitable for those with much experience in the hardcore scene in the bag. If you don't know or aren't used to bands like Converge or Norma Jean, don't even dream of enjoying a single second of The Chariot. However, if you just need a punch in the face to wake you up from that dream called a peaceful life, "Unsung EP" is exactly what you are looking for. But for me, there isn't enough innovation to distinguish them from their hardcore mates like Norma Jean, even with the occasional oddities such as subtle banjo melody occupying the mindless screaming in "Vin Affleck (Goodnight My Lady And A Forever Farewell)".
