A furious flurry of hardcore best describes Cursed's THREE, the lauded unit's latest 11-track offering. Scum rock, sludge metal, stoner doom, and punk abrasions are all included, colliding in a cauldron of despair seasoned with boldfaced anger on cuts like "Antihero Resuscitator", the blistering "Dead Air at the Pulpit" and the malicious mid-tempo stomp "Friends in the Music Business", whose end refrain outro of "don't call me/ I won't call you" exhbits this act's gut-wrenching explosiveness and venomous versatility. Slugging it out on a shoestring while letting it all hang out, Cursed yet again delivers a solid slab of angst-driven metal made for the underground.
