"FUCK HARDCORE, THIS IS POWER BEAT"
To be honest, that proclamation printed on the back of the sleeve tells you everything you need to know about Toronto's Triage.
The five tracks on the Power Beat 7" have more visceral fuck-you energy than anything I've heard in a long time, with vocalist Lia unleashing pure vitriol over catchy-yet-angry metal-tinged punk/punk-as-fuck metal.
The almost-NWOBHM melodic tinges, relentlessly chugging rhythms and abrasive vox put me in mind of GISM et al, but no doubt someone reading this thinks that's a load of shite.
If I write any more it'll take you longer to read this than to just listen to it, so just do it already.
If you want to pick up a copy of the 7", you can get it from Canada-based Faith / Void HERE.
I got my copy from La Vida Es Un Mus, but I just checked their distro and it's gone, so I guess I got the last one. Thank fuck.
