Hawg Jaw
Believe Nothing 12" (Deep Six Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Damn this record took me totally by surprise! I had only heard one or two HAWG JAW songs before I slapped this slab on the turntable and I guess it just hadn't sunk into my thick skull how totally overpowering a band this is! On the surface they may seem to be another mid-paced sludge band who has spent more than a few hours absorbing EYEHATEGOD records but in no way is that the limit of their sound. Their totally warped vocal delivery and super sick sound brings to mind THE ACCUSED at their finest. The skull cracking riffs are amazing and have that totally raw and rancorous vibe that hails equally to FLIPPER, later BLACK FLAG and MELVINS. It blows my mind to hear a band that is so phenomenally extreme that they are a perfect fit in today's over-the-top extreme hardcore scene and yet has such vintage characteristics that punks from 10, 15 or even 20 years ago would identify with it.
