I found Instinto randomly browsing Bandcamp’s punk section, and again I’m pleasantly surprised by my discovery. Instinto is a Spanish crust punk band—a country that I haven’t heard much heavy music from ever—and they bring a very satisfying album to the table.
It’s pretty typical crust, I suppose; simple three-chord riffs, D-beat drumming, harsh metal vocals. They don’t really do anything special or unique with their music, but what they do do is write some really damn fun songs. They’re fast and catchy, in a way that almost borders on being silly, but in an obviously entertaining way. They’re not trying to be serious (at least, I hope) and the album’s all the better for it.
Again, though, it’s very typical music, so even at a mere 25 minutes it gets a bit stale. But still, it’s a fine album, and it’s free, so… what do you have to lose?
