OI POLLOI / APPALACHIAN TERROR UNIT: Split EP: 7″

OI POLLOI are a punk rock band from Scotland that formed around 1981 and have put out a ton of great releases, and APPALACHIAN TERROR UNIT hail from Huntington, WV and play a powerful blend of classic anarcho-punk, crust and a hint of metal, with aggressive female vocals, and urgent political lyrics, so this is a great double-header with both bands ripping up the playing field.

OI POLLOI come at you with manic playing and gruff vocals that just make you want to get up and start a pit in your living room, everything is so tightly played and the great lyrics just put them over the edge into great on their three songs. APPALACHIAN TERROR UNIT tear through their songs with every bit the anger and energy of OI POLLOI and adding a layer of crust that fits this release perfectly.

I really can’t think of too many splits that are so perfect in the way the two bands compliment each other, but don’t emulate each other. This is a huge split that you need to go out and get. The packaging has a fold out poster and is being pressed on 100% recycled vinyl.
