All the fury of this Canadian crust three-piece’s live shows is compressed onto their first 7” of new material (The first 7” was a re-release of the demo). Not only is this raw and raging crust in all its gritty glory, but this is also some of the most tight and technical-sounding punk you’ll find in any subgenre. Three originals, plus a cover of “Misery,” by Bastard make this a solid EP that should be added to your collection immediately.

4 tracks of pounding crust-core from Nova Scotia that mixes in some Japanese style and some fast thrash, but with its feet firmly planted on an early English style a la DOOM. With lyrics that deal with the futility of hate, unjust cops, and the war we rage against the earth, there is plenty of rage here.
The raw style of the recording brings to mind the demo tape trading days of the late 80's and early 90's and it works really well here. It has a kind of demo feel but it is played so intensely and tight that it works for the ep format. They include a cover of BASTARD which gets them even more points in my book. Released on Rust and Machine Records from Seattle. Excellent!
Second 7" already from this band. Excellent hard charging crust in the Doom tradition. Both 7"S rip, if this band was from Japan instead of Halifax NS I would have sold them all by noon today

CRUST-HARDCORE. "trail of the world" is the 2nd 7" from Halifax's NAPALM RAID. Taking their raw mix of DOOM, ANTI-CIMEX, and DISCHARGE influences a step further with an improved recording showing the way they were meant to sound. The raw d-beat crust you crave is all here, with their own take on it making it catchy and memorable. If that was not enough this 4 song 7" includes a cover of "misery" from BASTARD.
