If you have good taste and like things like Unsane, Young Widows, Deadguy, Helmet, tacos, and beer, then you will want to blast this through your earholes.” Staticfraction
The output of the split with Buildings is an opportunity to look at the beginnings of Volunteer and discover a posteriori that this group was in the womb at birth. In their native Milwaukee, Volunteer started at three. Baritone guitarist who also gives voice, bassist, drummer, the three musicians were not their first musical experience. Former full of groups whose single Forstella Ford really tells me something. This entry hits with Volunteer on this first EP with six tracks, it is the sound that sails lower than dirt. A hyper low tuning to a center of gravity that is struggling to get rid of the mud in which it seems stuck. Recorded by bassist Martin Defatte, this noise-rock-sludge is so heavy it has all the trouble to take off. And as the compositions do not break the house down, you end up with a disk paving the way in the territory of Unsane, Melvins, early Helmet and other basic post-hardcore groups but which is not yet in up to these intentions. Some titles like Cobbler and Hitch however showed that the best was to Volunteer.” SKX, Perte & Fracas
