FULL CONTACT (UK) "Attitude Adjustment" CDEP
"Attitude adjustment" is the first EP by FULL CONTACT released digitally back in 2015 and now finally available in a physical format. FULL CONTACT is a very young band from the East Midlands, but those guys already know how to combine traditional UK styled Beatdown Mosh with a modern Hardcore groove. Catchy Metal riffing leading into heavy breakdowns, followed by fast forward parts, rounded up with dual vocals switching between furious shouting, Slam growls and spoken Rap parts. "Attitude adjustment" has the typical UK Beatdown Hardcore flavour and would perfectly fit between classical releases from bands like early TRC, 50 CALIBER, BEATDOWN FURY, old NINEBAR, SPECIAL MOVE and BUN DEM OUT.
