So Stressed – “Merv King and the Phantoms”
Short. Angry. To the point. Sacramento, CA hardcore outfit, So Stressed, is everything a band named “So Stressed” should be. High octane punk fuels their latest single “Merv King and the Phantoms”. Exasperated shouts awkwardly amble around the frantic guitars, and jumpy drum rolls before ending in a sea of crunch. It’s unclear if their melodic side will be featured at all on their new album, For the Unlawful Trade of Greco-Roman Art. For the time being, the trio of Morgan Fox, Kenneth Draper, and Andrew Garcia obviously decided to embrace the rough around the edges style which surfaced briefly in their previously released album, Attracted to Open Mouths, and it’s a great fit on them.
For the Unlawful Trade of Greco-Roman Art comes out May 26th on Honor Press.
