I was fucking looking forward to this so badly. My friend from NY had been raving about them (and seeing as they were the first band he has raved about since Angel Hair that's quite a compliment!!!), it was on a label I love (records by Limp Wrist, Three Mile Pilot and Men's Recovery Project??!! Awesome!!!) and they have some link or other to Deathreat or Funeral or one of those bands.

Its pretty brutal punk, sounds quite similar to Deathreat...you know, Discharge riffs, Void craziness, Black Flag intensity blah blah. But! I think they are lacking something, I'm sure live they rock but they don't hit me as had as some hardcore bands Ive heard recently. Don't get me wrong, I really like it, its just not as good as other bands doing this style. I've got a few singles since and they are pretty damn good.

This is a pretty impressive full length, it didn't blow me away but its enjoyable nonetheless.
