With a little bit of sludge mixed in with their brand of powerviolence, Boyed provides a murky and devastating sound within the nine tracks that are present on their self titled EP. Each track hits hard and quick, providing you with a concise run time as well as a punchy and violent listen overall. This wall of noise begins with Burning Bridges which serves as a thirty-five second opener for all of the chaos that is to come. Each track after Burning Bridges is just as anarchic and filled with pissed off determination. The only time when Boyed “slows” anything down is when they head for a break down and even then those bone stomping break downs are short lived as Boyed heads right back toward more of their uptempo violence.
Each of the nine tracks that are present on this release are bombastic and a blitzkrieg of noise as they leave your speakers as quick as they entered. This self titled release certainly is short but it doesn’t leave you without being entertained. Each track is solid and well executed providing you with a gritty and gnarled sound. From the get go, Boyed does a good job of getting you involved and head banging until the final song has concluded.
Even though there isn’t anything on this release that clearly stands out as unique and entirely different, this still is a solid record. As mentioned, each track is well executed and entertaining and this self titled release provides you with plenty of violence, anger and grit to get your neck bending and your head banging. Through nine tracks Boyed shows that they are here to stomp necks and provide people with their daily dose of sludge and grime filled powerviolence.
This self titled record is a solid one that exudes bitterness and anger to the fullest extent. Boyed is an entertaining band and their self titled EP is entertaining as well. This nine track sample of what is to come is a good indication of what we are to expect in the future, and what we are to expect is more dirty powerviolence out of these Essex natives.
