De-evolutionary hardcore quintet Scan batters and bellows through five tracks in eight minutes on its defoliating April EP, produced locally by Ian Rundell. Comparatively epic at 2:09, the roaring clatter of opener "Warlock" acts as the pit call and ignites white fury thrashing with a woozy, but oh-so-right guitar solo. Side sharer "Yo No Se" demonstrates equally fleeting shred. The trio of rabid, runaway chainsaw massacres on the flip fall like two-ton dominoes. Knockout.
