Holy shit.  This absolutely rips.  Here's a killer split featuring Brazil's Test and NYC/Peru's Chepang.  Chepang is a five piece band from NYC and Napal who formed in 2016.  Chepang play a vicious, brutal, and scathing style of politically charged music that incorporates elements of hardcore, punk, grindcore, and powerviolence within their sound.  Since forming in 2016, Chepang have released an eight song EP titled Lathi Charge in August of 2016,  a one song demo titled 1 Love in April of 2017, and a fourteen song LP titled Dadhelo in November of 2017. This is the band's latest two song split song EP, which was released via Cricket Cemetery records on May 31st  2018.   Each band offers up two tracks of vicious and brutal as fuck sounding hardcore, punk, grindcore, and powerviolence.  Overall, this is a killer split that makes for an awesome listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!

Test isn't the title of the EP. This is actually a split between Chepang and Test, a band from Brazil. They recently toured the US East Coast together as well.
