St. Albans hardcore outfit, Dead Weight, have that brutal sound that plenty of bands out there crave; there’s chugging guitars aplenty, unrepentant rhythms coming out of every orifice, yet on their ‘The Cut Loose’ EP, there’s something missing. It’s only a 3-track release, so it’s difficult to get a grasp of what exactly this band is about. The guitars, bass and drums hit you like an oncoming freight train, but the lead vocals from Sam Hames remain slightly alienating throughout, even considering the EP isn’t vocal heavy.
