New Band To Burn One To: MOUNTAINSIDE


"As I curiously gazed at the cover of Mountainside's third release "Solitary, Poor, Nasty, Brutish and Short" , I couldn't even begin to imagine what I would find within. Unbeknownst to me the band has been around since the early 2000's. Five simple words stare back at me and  in someway or another are able to capture the devastation and diversity that this band from Lithuania purveys. From the interesting track listing to the thought provoking song titles it is evident that there is nothing short of ordinary about this band. Thunderous and precise, complex yet simple this album is full of nasty jackhammer riffing, brutish gut punching vocal aggression and unconventional song structures. Also evident is the band's punk/hardcore/thrash influence on the short and jarring track "Stone Into Sand". Sitting here in a solitary state, I try to soak in all of the different styles and influences that comprise such a monolithic band. So to all of the poor bastards like myself that have never heard this amazing band before, the time is now to savor the opportunity!
