With this EP, Head in a Jar proves their seemingly infinite creativity and passion to do what they want with a power to make it sound unbelievably consistent. Beginnig with “Fatal Error”, Head in a Jar enters the stage and immediatly smashes everything. Speedy riffs, drums under barrage, a bassist nearly escalating completly with his part to get off with a great start. Unbelievable how the band skilfully grabs your attention, saying “we are godamn here, take our blast!”The middlepart convinces completly with a crowning conclusion that can be swallowed down like a juicy piece of greasy pizza! “Selfcare Despair” is another tasty piece of excellent Crossover Thrash where immediatly every muscle in your neck gets activated. This track hits me the most, their crazy talented way to switch from hard harsh riffs with melodic passages to Hardcore influenced breaks gives me crazy chills during the whole track. The gangshouts are perfectly pointed out and the pressure will be mantained steady and strong. A thrashy earworm!

Finally, their EP-titled track “Suburband Witchcraft” rips everything off that was on your greasy pizza and smashes you with aggressive shouts, shredding riffs and amazing blasting drumplay to freakin hell. That groovy beginning riff followed by that explosive drop threw all of my expetations over the top. Is it that cheesy intro that gets surprised with that energetic start, or the midpart which is filled with a fantastic guitar solo and a built-in skit that gets me permanently hooked? Who knows, this band just rips!
