Burn Out For Love b/w Dancing On The Razors Edge
Dirty Water Records
New Zealand’s grimiest punk outfit The Cavemen has returned with a two-track single, Burn Out For Love b/w Dancing On The Razors Edge. The single follows the release of their self-titled full-length album from earlier this year.
The first of two tracks, “Burn Out For Love” wastes no time to getting started with a barrage of thrashing drums, beyond distorted guitars, edgy vocals in the tone of Johnny Rotten and Iggy Pop circa 1973, with an overall lo-fi flare. In true punk form, the band blasts through a couple of choruses, an aggressive guitar solo, and the song is over just like that.
“Dancing On The Razors Edge” is perhaps even more aggressive than the previous track with the amps sounding as if they’re set to combust after a long day in the studio. The guitars are crunchier, more rhythmic with ample amounts of feed back, and the pace is blistering.
All in all, Burn Out For Love b/w Dancing On The Razors Edge is what you should expect from The Cavemen: it’s fast, it’s rough, and it sounds like a dropkick to the face. While only a single, this should leave fans excited for what is to come in the next year as the band continues to hone their skills as some of the hardest old school punks around.
