Corpus-Christi-by-way-of-Durham’s Wailin Storms aren’t the sort of band I expect Magic Bullet records to put out. The label’s specialty is searing metallic hardcore. While there’s some metal and hardcore in the Wailin Storms sound, it mostly simmers. There’s strength in simmering: one cooks a lobster by slowly raising the heat.

“Ribcage Fireplace,” like most of the other songs on the band’s upcoming debut One Foot in the Flesh Grave is a slow burner, all mounting percussion and overdriven blues chords. Just when it reaches a fever-pitch, it ends. Wailin Storms don’t overstay their welcome. The way vocalist Justin Storms caws over the din reminds me of the two most recent Wovenhand records.

One Foot in the Flesh Grave is out on November 20 via Magic Bullet. Follow Wailin Storms on Facebook.
