Hedera Helix is the debut recording by London hardcore band Pink Grip. Enmeshed in the febrile London punk scene, Pink Grip are a four-piece who gel into one apocalyptic hammer. The guitars revel in metallic overtones and palm muted power chords, doom-laden changes and visceral tones that seem to battle with the savage, rasped vocal. In opener "Crotch Pocket", a monolithic intro collapses into a pulverizing D-Beat section reminiscent of Japanese Burning. Spirit bands such as Bastard come to mind with following track "Out Of Luck", mixing up a Hot Snakes style guitar with the rabid spitting lyrics. "Spithead" is a mosh-heavy stomper, a mid-paced pit-leveler driven by massive sounding low-heavy tom drums and a dynamic that rises and falls into troughs of malevolence. Closer "Listerine" is the most hook-heavy track, erupting into a driving break-neck song that breaks down in an evil ecstasy.
