Oh, look, another finely crafted release from Vulgar Pigeons. Who would've thought? Certainly not you as you probably dropped the ball on their last full length. Burning Episode picks up where they left us last on Imperialism, bringing another round of raw, appropriately produced, aggressive, spastic, and grinding material.
Not unlike the widely hailed Pig Destroyer, Vulgar Pigeons have a unique but ultimately directed style. Unleashing both deep-bellied growls, furious yelling, and occasionally dizzying musicianship, they take a break from their continual blasts to inject each track with it's share of moshy and sludgy material without feeling held up by some sort of obligatory variation. Thanks to the efforts of Scott Hull, the EP is prevented from becoming too polished and audible, and as a result, still retains the inflection that what you're hearing is fantastically undiscovered. To a large extent, the Vulgar Pigeons embody just that. It may seem that they're pushing themselves even a little further with the uncharacteristic groovy basslines found on "Operation - Assassination", or the noisy break in the middle of "Coffin Honeymoon" before the song dismantles itself.
So to recap: another finely crafted release from Vulgar Pigeons. They're not changing the world or reshaping heavy music, but they're certainly pushing things along on their own terms. Surprisingly enough, these are also the same terms that a lot of people should've already been enjoying now for a great while. Don't mug anyone for the money to go out and buy this EP, however, maybe convince your family you're really struggling and go out and pick up the full length.
