"Bone Dance" (Throat Ruiner; 2012)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Boise, ID quintet Bone Dance summons up a maelstrom of hardcore malevolence on their self-titled 10-track endeavor.

Aggressive and abrasive from start to finish, this hard-hitting release renders a ruthless and relentless rollercoaster ride fueled by seething anger and unabashed fury (“Children Having Children”).

Creatively chaotic and unpredictable, this unit melds misanthropic mayhem from metalcore pioneers of the 90s, such as Botch and Converge (“White Guilt”), with an extra coating of filth a la contemporaries such as Gaza (“Conniver”) to leave scars on the brain and the ears of listeners bold enough to partake in their brand of brutality (“Barren”).

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
