Pounder is a Heavy Metal project that Matt Harvey (of Exhumed, Gruesome, and Expulsion) created with the bassist Alejandro Corredor (Nausea LA, live bassist for Vallenfyre) met an Englishman in New York guitarist Tom Draper (Carcass, ex-Angel Witch, Crowning Glory), California and decided to pack as many 80’s inspired elements and influences in one album. Even though there’s no Reagan, Thatcher or spandex in ‘Uncivilized’, still there’s a plethora of classic heavy metal sounds, N.W.O.BH.M. parts, speed metal fueled tunes, haunting power-ballads, night crawling stories and 8 well written songs in this 42 minutes of travelling back in the most glorious decade of Heavy Metal.
