Weekend Nachos
Worthless

Opening with a ripping guitar solo that hits with the force of an out of control machine gun. Instantly the glass shatters from the window that encases your lavishing frame. 20 seconds in and the murderous intentions seep through and kill everything in the blink of an eye. How is this done? Powerviolence!

Weekend Nachos are back with their second release through Relapse, Worthless. Showcasing the sounds that we all know and love, this my friends is powerviolence the way it’s meant to sound; heavy, violent and fast.

Even with all the quick paced songs under 2 minutes, Weekend Nachos never bores since they constantly switch up the rhythms whilst adding touches of sludge and hardcore.

“Hometown Hero” sets the tone for the album and the brisk violent pace never lets up unless it’s to batter ones brains with molasses riffs and gargantuan beatdowns. In fact the groove laden riff that closes “Old Friends Don’t Mean Shit” will have one instantly banging their heads like psychopaths.

“The Meeting” adds stoner rock riffs with a Benumb grind sound that is absolutely terrifying. This menacing monster leads into the first long song “Worthless.” At 4 minutes (yes this is a long song for pv bands), the band straddles the fine line between dirty noisy drone and gigantic beatdown riffs. No vocals, just utter heaviness.

From here on out it’s a few short songs that do their best to cave in the walls of your skull and collapse your brain. Especially “You Could Exist Tommorow,” the song adds punk beats with an old school grind attack.

“Future” ends the album and it’s a ridiculous closer that shows a different side of the band. For the first 30 or so seconds it’s a short pv intro, and then it’s all sludgy drone territory for the next 6 minutes. Imagine Sunn O))) riffs coupled with Eyehategod sludgy-ness. Not the sound of the world ending more so akin to a torturous rape session, this beast is ugly…very fucking ugly.

Sure there are times during the album where the sludge takes away from the fast songs but hell at least their experimenting with the genre and making it their own.

If your looking for some wicked fast and heavy as hell tunes then Weekend Nachos is for you. Get into it!
