Wrangler Brutes is a thrash supergroup that makes a racket reminiscent of Japanese hypercore/power violence acts such as Slight Slappers and Assfort. Their street cred is legit. Vocalist Sam McPheeters and drummer Brooks Headley made their bones in the great hardcore band Born Against; and bass player Cundo Si Murad and guitarist Andy Coronado hail from the skronk-punk band the Nazti Skinz. The quartet tackles homophobia, politics, scenesters, old age, et cetera on Zulu with minute-and-a-half blasts. Eighteen tracks: twenty minutes of solid mayhem.
