It’s been a while, but there once was a time when a majority of heavy music was, well, heavy. Long before the triggered drums and pop choruses, it was honest, real and uncompromisingly aggressive. Volunteer takes its listener back to that time, recalling the sounds of Unsane, Helmet and The Melvins. Featuring former members of Stock Options, Traitors and Gasoline Fight, this Milwaukee trio’s no frills blend of punk, metal and hardcore is straight and to the point.
