ABOLITIONIST: The Pinnacle: EP

I hear traces of mid-to-late ‘80s DC hardcore influences here, but by and large, Abolitionist are Abolitionist. Smart lyrics that address alienation, ecology, and more are back with a solid wall of sound that takes the room over. The guitar has a nice crunch that adds to the solid thumping the whole band delivers in each song. By the time you have read this review they may have played your town. Go see them, should the chance arise. –Matt Average (1859, 1859records.storeenvy.com)
