Jowls: Cursed – Brutal, intense, passionate, dark, and spiteful. I saw this three piece a few days ago in indianapolis and was lucky enough to be able to pick this release up in tape format. The recent change from two to three piece Jowls is paving the road for post hardcore and screamo. The lyrics on the six tracks of Cursed bury you in despair, anger and revenge. The music encompasses every verb that I have given to describe the album. I am a relativity positive person but after one listen I start to feel very pessimistic. I don’t know if that is what they are going for but if so, right on.
