Grimey aggo-rock finished its bow and defeat to whiney Emo years ago. Its been reincarnated in the oddest of forms, Cactus in Nashville, TN. To be completely accurate, Cactus's. The intentionally grammarless formation has been together for only a short amount of time at the time of this review, and their Demo can easily draw comparisons to Bear vs. Shark.

Very much reliant upon all out Punk, songs like Where Is My Skeleton contrasts so well against Tiny Teeth which have a more Metal backbone. All songs regardless of genre, have terrifically progressive harmonics. Purple Coyote is one of those tracks that melts in a poppy sensationalism to their sound. Though lead and backing vocals are as Screamo as they come, the last thing anyone should do is place these guys in that genre of ceilings. The song titled Daddy has the characteristics of Swedish legends Blindside. Nicely timed melody changes are evident and throughout any of Cactus's writing.

Though, they're smack in the middle of Country music USA, and their chances of building a strong fanbase locally are slim-to-none, the songwriting abilities and overall natural understanding of aggressive rock has them as my Independent artist of the year. These guys are permanently on my Independent artists on the rise radar.
