Released early last year, this downtuned rager slipped under my radar until recently, but I'm glad I picked up the blips and paid attention. Equal parts CURSED, HIS HERO IS GONE and MÖRSER, Chicago's REGRETS concentrate on the calculated attack and just simply destroy. The vocals are overbearing and weighty, and the band is at their best when they slow to a painful crawl and let that harsh voice take the lead. Crushing, oppressive and excellent.
