Hot Coffin: Hot Coffin
Ramshackle Wisconsinites distil the source of post-hardcore
Post-hardcore has mutated greatly over the years, its sound diluted after the mid-00s mainstream boom period.
So how refreshing it is to hear a band that takes the sound of true hardcore punk rock as its base component. Listening to Hot Coffin’s second album, it’s obvious the Milwaukee quartet aren’t solely intent on writing pop hooks and soaring choruses when they can coax rumbling and ramshackle noise out of their weathered and worn instruments much more comfortably.
