BRUNCH: Ottawa

Husky crustwork from Current's id. Essential side from hardcore's roaring '90s describes one alternative to the enmetaling enshrined by Jihad on the flip. Ottawa broadcasts a fierce but freewheeling urgency, the careful articulation of speed with sludge, and an "emotional" discipline, especially in "Victim of Dedication," that many contemporaries altogether missed: anguish, but not arrhythmia.
