Album Stream: Cowards – ‘Hoarder’

France’s Cowards are readying the new Hoarder 12″ for physical release in early September via Throatruiner / Ruins Records. Stream that effort in its entirety below, and/or download it for free HERE.

Featuring past/present members of Sickbag, Eibon, Glorior Belli, Colossus of Destiny, and many others, Cowards practice sludge-y, booming hardcore with vocals that approach Dave Verellen (Botch/Narrows) status. And though rooted firmly in mid-paced hardcore, look for elements of Eyehategod, Buzzoven, Acme, touches of black metal, grind and more to rear their ugly head across the length of this monster. Check out all five tracks, including the cover of Sixteen Horsepower’s “Blessed Persistence” below.
