Hardcore For The Losers & 9 LIES show :
Regional Justice Center (Seattle, WA X STRAIGHT & ALERT, ADAGIO830)
"Leaning far more on the punk side of powerviolence, I hear elements of everything from Black Army Jacket, Crossed Out, Charles Bronson and Coke Bust. Somewhere in their practice space lies a thumbed-through Slap-A-Ham catalog. All of the trappings of classic powerviolence and frenzied hardcore are here in spades: grindcore runtimes, lighting fast hardcore interspersed with demonically heavy lurching passages and the requisite blown out bass tone. Blastbeats abound, but the record transcends when it slows into truly unsettling sludge"
HARM DONE (Nantes, France X STRAIGHT & ALERT)
"They play some kind of cold and no frills powerviolence filled with Infest’s speed, Sex Prisoner’s ignorant breakdowns and Entombed’s HM2 metallic guitar sound."
