Altered Beast aren't trying to reinvent the metallic hardcore wheel with their new self-titled 7". The Kansas City outfit delivers groove-driven guitar riffs by the pound, and the vocals are all piss and vinegar.
"Falling Apart" is a standout track from Altered Beast's debut vinyl offering that drops some serious mosh in under two minutes. Ryan Leach's murderous vocal blitzkrieg is just the topper here. When the man screams out, "Without a beacon of hope, these failures I cope with," you sort of believe him.
