Pure Violent Hedonism is a five-piece band from Rethymno, Crete and we’re here to comment on their first official release, their self-titled EP. After a small taste they gave us with their single “World of Lies” almost two years before, which you can enjoy at the end of the EP as a re-mastered bonus track, they are back stronger and present to us three new songs. In less than its fifteen minutes duration it’s pretty clear that it’s about a band that has worked a lot and stands on its feet. The five filter their straight hardcore influences in details and mix them with contemporary metalcore and Swedish melodic touches while violent breakdowns, furious blast beats and catchy parts also have their say. In general, we’re dealing with a more than decent effort from a really young band who I’d like to see putting out a full length work with a little more of themselves between their influences.
