While many might think of TV's most dominate force Breaking Bad when they see the words "meth lab," I think this Richmond act paints a far more gritty and chemically clouded sound that is truer to its name. The demo, while short (as it should be), contains a rough production that fits with its knuckle dragging splendor of basement power violence. Constant shifts in speed and attack paired with vocals akin to Infest (after a couple crystal hits) and you've got a brand of aggro ridden and attention challenged power violence that will never be content with more than 10 seconds at the same pace. Heavy, dirty, and overall smothering, Meth Lab are deceptively tight and right on the money as their demo has found itself to be a consistent listen since I received it.
Check out the demo below and follow the link to their bandcamp. This is hot off the presses, so get on it.
