Never been a big fan of grindcore/powerviolence, but I got a 7" in the mail from a band out of Portland, Oregon called Honduran, and while I still am not a huge fan of the genre as a whole, I am finding that I like Honduran quite a bit. They play fast and furious, sometimes slowing down ever-so-temporarily, with guttural, harsh vocals at times accented with higher-pitched shrieks and yells. It's nothing groundbreaking, but the songs are well-crafted and performed well, making this 7" an overall solid release. 4 songs, totaling just over 7 minutes. See the link to their website above to get it thru mailorder, or contact them here to see what else they've got. If all else fails, head to their Bandcamp page to download their entire catalog free of charge.
