Two bands from Canaduh that will be sadly missed. And what other way to do it than release a split 12" in a shape of a buzzsaw on mint-green vinyl. I was hoping it'd be in bloody red but I'm not complaining. Probably in future this record will serve the purpose of a self-defense weapon but as of now this will be spinning on 4500rpm on my player.

Acrid had current members of Grade and here are four tracks that are more or less similar to those on their 'Eighty-Sixed' album. For those unaware of how Acrid sound, you could probably give Reversal of Man's 'Revolution Summer' a shot and deepen up the vocals to make it sound like he's roaring. And for those unaware of Reversal of Man, probably try Converge. Yeah, everybody knows Converge. And if youdon't know Acrid if you're a Converge fan, then shame on you!!!

Left For Dead had Jeff from Acrid. Anywho, LFD barges forward with nine tracks that all are anthems on it's own. They all sum up to one word: hardcore. There shall be no comparisons as they are the basis for comparisons.

'Goodbye and Fuck You All' as they say it.
