BASIC SKILLS REVIEW: Self-titled: 7” EP

Six-song platter from this band that hails from the rolling hills of Virginia. Obviously, they’re fans of some of their former neighbors (like Scream), but these gentlemen bring more than their influences to the party. Melodic hardcore with vocals that rail against injustice makes for a potent combination. All of these players have paid their dues in the DC underground. The end result is fantastic. “Infinity” is the fresh horse out of the gate for me, but they all burn hard and fast. Do yourself a favor and grab this bad boy. Reston Hardcore=represent!
