-(16)- / FISTULA – Split 7"
Writes Chris Luedtke of Metal Injection upon an advance listen of both splits, “-(16)- brings the their sludgy/rock infused tone to ‘Complications’ by Killing Joke. Not surprisingly, the song gets deeper, darker, and heavier. Cris Jerue’s vocals in particular bring an angry, almost disgusted tone to the song. Meanwhile the riffs are chunkier and heavier, and the song is still plenty catchy. FISTULA come out swinging with a cover of Devo’s ‘Mongoloid.’… The cover is straight up punk, ditching the new wave/electronic elements. It’s not a speed freak song but it sounds like late ‘70s hardcore/punk. And if you’ve heard FISTULAbefore, you know they ain’t afraid to kick out some old school hardcore.”
