Here’s a brutal, if a little earnest, 5-track slab of ‘progressive hardcore’ (their description, not mine) to digest over the weekend. Southampton’s The Long Haul are members of the loosely grouped #UKSWELL scene which Tandark wrote about back in April, and as such bring influences such as Converge and Poison The Well to the the UK rock table. While I wouldn’t say anything on this EP is as good as Axe To Fall or The Tropic Rot, I can appreciate that The Long Haul are representing the UK hardcore/metal/punk/whatever scene in a much better way than Enter Shikari, for which we should at least applaud them. And, rather than spouting misogynistic crap as alot of post-hardcore bands are want to do, they’re shouting about the economy, stupid. Give it a try. -noiseclub
