But Honeys excels in this bleak white-collar/pimple-popper arena. The band starts their discourse like a swarm of riff-hungry wasps, vibrating your ears from the instead out. The further the album progresses, the deeper we go into the rock 'n' roll tar pit. "Cathouse" is an absolute classic noisecore anthem, filled of stiff commands, bringing you closer to setting those TPS reports on fire. Despite the sludge fest and nearly metal sound, there is nothing messy about Honeys -- each element fits together, stewing toward nuclear.
The Bottom Line: These Allentown punks were one of the first first to bring sludgy rock back into indie. The Men, METZ and other loud-mouthed bands are certainly following in their footsteps.
