Review – Peruvian Necktie – Self Titled EP

This is only going to be a quick review, as this EP is already out….but, I have to admit I’ve been on a bit of a Hardcore trip recently, and shooting off down all sorts of rabbit holes of the genre, from crossover to beat down and everything in between, now as always I was looking into the UK underground to see what bands were about, and one of the bands that I came across is Bristol four piece, Peruvian Necktie, and their debut Self Titled EP…

The Peruvian necktie is a choke from the front headlock position. This position is important in wrestling, but it is not as utilized in Jiu Jitsu. The front headlock works when you are in front of an opponent who is bent down and you have their head and one arm trapped in a headlock.

Yeah, I had to google it, I thought that maybe it was a South American version of a ‘Glasgow Smile’… but apparently that’s a ‘Colombian Necktie’… which is way more violent that the MMA grapple move the Bristolians have named themselves on… not that I fancy being on the receiving end of any of them to be fair!!

Anyway, enough ramblings, now this Bristol 4 piece have come out swinging, and the 4 track EP has everything you want from underground UKHC, blistering riffs, bottom end that makes your teeth rattle and vocals that range from spit and flow of a rapper to the growls of 90’s death metal, always sounding angry and venomous and on the verge of being out of control, with the ideal balance of fast and heavy, mosh ready breakdowns with a bit of a funky bass slap to give it groove.

It’s pointless doing a blow by blow of the tracks as the EP is already out, so just go and take a listen wherever you get your music from, it’s well worth 15 minutes of anyones time… and if you don’t want to delve in from the start.. ‘Wild Trails’ is our favourite track… which is great because it the one with a lyric video…
