Around since 2001 but only with one recording under
their belt previous to this brief EP, Hoosier Poet rock the
fuck out and they make no apologies. One of the heaviest hardcore
bands to come out of Ontario in awhile, these folks charge through
five songs in under seventeen minutes, blasting out huge, feverishly
rapid guitar riffs and yelled vocals like it's nobody's business.
These songs are dynamic and very well written, from the building
explosion of "Glory Title" to the frustrated urgency of "All These
Cinders Vol. 1 & 2". Everyone loves some excruciatingly aggressive
music in their diet sometimes, and Hoosier Poet fill that role
about as well as anyone can. This EP is the ultimate catharsis.
Fun Fact: The actual "Hoosier
Poet" was James Whitcomb Riley, a beloved children's poet from the
turn of the century. He coined the phrase: "When I see a bird that
walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call
that bird a duck."
