I did not know that Clutch had dipped in this pool of heaviness,
not just words my friends but sound

In the beginning ... March 22 2001
By Nick - Published on
Format: Audio CD
If you like "nu-metal," well, a.) You need help, but also b.) All of those bands you like owe a debt of gratitude to Clutch. Along with Helmet and Quicksand, Clutch took hardcore music to a new plateau with its first 3 releases. This is a collection of music that would be considered #2; it's from 1992 but if it were released today it would likely go platinum. The riffs are hard, the bass is chunky, the vocals are barky and deep. It's a terrific representative of the purer side of hardcore music.

CLUTCH ROCKS June 25 2001
By D. Chang - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Clutch is the quintessential hardcore band. NOBODY makes music like this anymore, at least nothing you would ever hear on the radio or, god forbid, MTV. Limp Bizkit, Korn, Godsmack, none of them can hold a candle to Clutch-- old Clutch at least, and this is as old as it gets for anyone who wasn't on the early 90's D.C. hardcore scene when they came out. Their newer stuff starts to thin out on the intensity, but this EP is as good as Clutch ever were. If you are extremely lucky, you will have an old fan around to dub the "Pitchfork" 7" demo which contains Clutch's first recordings. Anyway, BUY THIS CD. You will not regret. Great riffs, great lyrics, REAL LOUD, and a great insight into the hardcore roots of this great band. The last three songs are the older Earache EP "Passive Restraints," and the first two are from an Earache compilation disc from Europe called "Naive," including "Piledriver," possibly the greatest Clutch song ever.

Not heard much... Aug. 8 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Earache records re-released this EP with a couple of bonus tracks that are a real treat to the insane Clutch fan. One, older, unreleased song plus a demo cut from the early days of Clutch really let you in on the roots. Way back when, Neil Fallon's voice needed heavy processing to come across as punk and the riffs were simpler and heavier... Deep, excellent lyrics. I'm only giving this one 3 stars because it's basically a marketing ploy. The original (Passive Restrains) would definetly get 5 stars from me. Still, a real must for HUGE fans. Bring the heaviness home! P.S. If you're not convinced, fish out a copy of Passive Restraints at your local music store and read the lyrics. (All three songs are printed on the back.)

All 4 songs on this EP are great! You get "Impetus" twice but hey it's an awesome song so why not! There's 3 songs on this album that you can't get anywhere else unless you're willing to shell out the 30+ dollers to get the origional "Passive Restraints" And "Impetus" is not on that record. So that would be: "Pile Driver", "High Caliber Consecrator", and of course "Impetus". "Passive Restraints" you can get on "Pitchfork and Lost Needles". If you're a hardcore Clutch fan you're defenitely gonna want these 3 songs!

I've already stated my admiration for "Impetus", it's just a kick a$$ old school Clutch song. "Pile Driver" is very heavy and it is very raw sounding. Normally I'm not a big fan of that raw sound, but it works very well on this song. "High Caliber Consecrator", this song is a little over 7 min. long. It's cool because it has many differint breaks and rythem changes in it.

All in all this is very rare, very raw, and very classic Clutch. And it is a must for any Hardcore fan!

A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Long before they were making records that helped kick life back into the sorry state of rock during the Nu Metal/Garage Rock days, Clutch were a very aggressive metallic hardcore band who were regulars of Washington DC's Black Cat and 9:30 club. Similar in vein to New York bands like Helmet and Unsane, the Clutch of old beats out riveting hardcore riffage, rumbling bass, Gaster's suprisingly solid drum work, and Fallon's youthful but still strong vocals. Neil still injects doses of humor here, but he's far more pissed and enraged sounding in this cd than any releases prior. There are occasionally knods to the band's southern and classic rock roots as well. Even if you're not a Clutch fan but appreciate good early 90's music, check out Impetus
