Tørsö, Skemäta, Drug Charge

When: Wed., April 6, 9:30 p.m. 2016

On the surface, there’s little on Tørsö’s searing December LP, Sono Pronta a Morire, that won’t be familiar to hardcore fans. The drums hit a sprinting D-beat charge. The guitars churn and squeal between frantic riffs. The singer howls scathing social commentary. But listen again and hear what attracted the rarely complacent local punk label Sorry State to the band; Tørsö’s hardcore is a tightly wound, volatile mix of subgenre hallmarks. Behind a wall of crust spring bass lines that would sound at home on a Marked Men record. Between redline blitzes are patient, almost restrained breakdowns. The record’s familiarity belies a welcome depth. —Bryan C. Reed
