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."
