MAAX (U.S.) “Six Pack Witchcraft” DIGI CD EP review

by Goatsden

By Goatsden

5 songs and 14 minutes of rolling black thrash metal thunder from an Indiana group. This EP was originally released in 2010, and the band have since realized a full-length LP, which I’ve not heard. Regardless, this is a solid piece of evil metal madness.

The opening cut, “Die By The Ax” is a beast of unbridled mayhem, with witchy vocals and a tough thrash exterior. Imagine if Motorhead careened headfirst into Darkthrone, and you’d be close to Maax’s ferocious sound. The other cuts, including the blurry and subtle “Go Fuck Yourself”, echo this sentiment. The title track is a pure drunken punk/black metal crossover that is as dirty and smelly as can be, which is a good thing. The only thing holding up this brief EP is the muddied mix, in which the lower end seems bottomed out. Nonetheless, these guys bring it in an authentic way.
