THE RODEO IDIOT ENGINE - CONSEQUENCES LP (Dingleberry/ Black Lake/ Throatruiner) 
Hailing from the Basque Country "Consquences" is already the third full lenght by this brilliant, but hardly overseen modern hardcore band. The Rodeo Idiot Engine blast through menacing mathy and chaotic hardcore with touches of grindcore, post-metal and post-rock complete with blazing fast drumming, relentless guitar work and heavy screaming vocals. The songs vary between complex metal riffage and atmospherically dense soundscapes, that all of a sudden turn into frantic blast-beat driven hardcore. All members are really comfortable with their instruments and it's hardly to be seized, with which precision and tightness they nail down their extremly varied tunes. "Consequences" shows some simularities to Converge. At the same time the records sounds unique and fresh enough to be more than a cheap copy. Very nice! (Listen to it here)
