PARADOX - S/T TAPE
Paradox’s blurring of the paper-thin line between crusty d-beat and lightning-quick metal has made the band an ideal addition to any punk or metal bill around town for the past few years. Tracks such as the brooding and blasphemous opening track “Hordes,” should spread the word further that Paradox can play one night with Uniform and the next with Hellgoat without redirecting most of the cigarette smokers in the building to the nearest sidewalk.
The sizzling orchestra carries the punk in its bide, milling its riffs with the radial miter saw to slice in large widths. The drummer, remarkably muscular of the chopsticks, put all on the effectiveness of his work.
