Uhm, wow. So this is only a 5 track EP and some of the songs may be on the next album, but, fucking wow anyway. This is perhaps one of the best things I've heard all year. At times intense, pissed as fuck hardcore but at others the band slide into a kind of "revelation" style melodic hardcore that just works perfectly. Thankfully the lyrics match the quality of the music - and any band that urges you to read Chomsky has almost certainly got its collective head screwed on properly.

I hate reviews like this - I'm just so blown away by this CD and I just know this review won't do it justice. But your life really isn't complete without this....
