I thought the last post would be my final one for the year, but I decided to do this one as well, to celebrate a great band calling it quits. Plus Flynn is a fellow contributor over at icoulddietomorrow. I'm sad they're breaking up (1) because they're an awesome band (2) I never got a chance to see them play (3) my plans for Record Hospital Fest 2009 have been dashed.
These boys outta Maryland put out a demo last summer and had it up for free online. I don't remember how I came across it originally, but I do know it's more of the screamy hardcore we all love. I don't think I like it as much as their 7", but that's pretty tough competition. "Beginning" was one of my favorite tracks of this year. Anyway, this is kind of a half-assed entry, but listen to this, buy their 7", get into it. And happy new year.
Info on getting their 7"
