This is something special. Shards are members of Logic Problem, Crossed Eyes, Whatever Brains, and Street Sharks playing catchy and fast - but DARK(!) - hardcore punk. My expectations of melodic punk or fast hardcore were completely blown away. This definitely isnít like anything Iíve heard in recent memory and Iím sort of at a loss about who or what to compare this to. Probably something like a hybrid of early 80s hardcore (Circle Jerks, Black Flagís ĎFirst 4 Yearsí sound), The Misfits (the good stuff!) and Christian Deathís ĎOnly Theatre of Painí darkness. The vocals are really snotty, like a more sardonic Void. I donít have anything bad to say about this one. Man, I donít even know! If youíre reading reviews on C-Z try this out and youíll dig it. Early front runner for my 2011 best LPs list.
