Brutal Wounds take a step forward, distinctive songwriting. Tim's unique vocal and bass playing are added to tracks with more light and shade. In particular the more melancholy Skin is reminiscent of the Only Ones in places which is high praise indeed. The opener harks back to the more ferocious attack of Tim's previous band Diatribe.
This is individual, experimental, exploratory. Actually its not that difficult to be original but to be original and good is much harder - this pulls it off. Give it a listen and let it stretch your ears.
