Slutty Church Chixxx and their very non-Googable-at-school-or-work name is a hardcore band out of Alabama. They apparently formed after being inspired during a viewing of the American Hardcore documentary. While they've got good intentions, the results are admittedly less than stellar.

This self-titled 7" does sound like early '80s American hardcore, sure, but with a sloppy and generic tilt to it all the same. Their singer barks in a deeper grunt à la John Brannon or Damian Abraham, while the music behind him chugs away at an iffy, sluggishly up-tempo pace.

Opener "No Morality" is the most memorable of the eight short songs, a 30-second spout where the singer declares "I don't need...your morality!" There's a more metallic feel to "Suicide," but it doesn't feel too anachronistic (you know, at least if this was supposed to have been released 25-30 years ago). "Exit 6" is an obvious nod to some of the poppier Black Flag stuff, with a riff cribbed right out of "Rise Above." "Bible Belt" sounds like an angry Midwest band of the elder time, but it's not as realized or invigorating as, say, Zero Boys or someone from that area.

Overall, it's a flawed performance short of real scrappiness or catchiness, but if the members were to invest some more time in this project there could be something good here.

i googled them and its like i figured: cool name, sucky songs. the singer sounds like he's 500 pounds singing in a shitty metal voice and also metal backing. I HATE METAL GET THE FUCK OUT OF HARDCORE!!!!

I dont like stupi d abreviations for bands except dk's. artwork on this kinda sux as well, like its the year 2000 and computers really such buy you need some grafix.

the reviewer gets points for mentioning and knowing who the zero boys are cause they're always rad and fast and good shit to listen to if you like old school punk and who doesnt! (most everyone in america.. lulz)
