No Jason Statham here, but Crank is still a heavy hitter. At seven tracks, this EP falls just short of album territory. You don’t need to listen long to find some Hardcore Punk in the mix. Effects are minimal, power chords are abundant, and Singer Samu Peltonen’s gravelly voice is nice and loose. He’s got that same in-your-face snarl as Lars Frederiksen, who also wrote about life in drab suburbia.
Damage Limit have been around since 2010 and previously released a demo and a shorter EP. “Struck Down” is a great track on this one with slow-headbanging chug-a-chug breakdowns, and “No Reason” has a noteworthy chorus. In fact, the choruses of this EP are its inertia, giving distinction and climax to an otherwise no-frills endeavor.
