Great Review from Razorcake on the Wood Chickens LP - Countrycide. Winner, winner, Chicken dinner!

WOOD CHICKENS: Countrycide: LP

The cowpunk genre is dangerous territory for me in that I’m unfamiliar with the roots and am quite indifferent to country music entirely (from Johnny Cash to Merle Haggard to Garth Brooks: not fucking sorry). Wood Chickens are definitely doing the cowpunk thing—right down to the cow skull on the cover—but songs like “Angie Hosh,” “Hex on Me,” and “Dyin’ on the Vine” are straight-up hardcore punk not unlike Everything Falls Apart-era Hüskers. “Flesh ‘N’ Blood” is a very Minutemen-esque song that also rules pretty hard. I was almost ready to dismiss this as forgettable alt-country (the Refreshments, et cetera) or even as Flogging Molly without the fiddles and accordion, but I’m really glad I gave this a closer look because there’s so many more layers to this record than just that. Winner, winner, chicken dinner! –Juan Espinosa

We have to apologize that it took so long but the Clawtoe single is finally at the pressing plant.

This record alternates between lurching, tectonic AmRep power-slude, and kinetic, direct, hardcore punk – often within the same song.   Vocals are up-front and in your face, channeling Henry Rollins, mostly Damaged era, but with elements of the first ROLLINS BAND LP.  This is not a bad thing.  The guitarist is a little more experimental with effects than on your typical hardcore record, giving this a slight psychedelic flair.  Good stuff, hope to hear more.
