BLACK HOLE KIDS: Dull Conjecture: 7”

Sep 16, 2011

This is the band’s first 7” and is mostly straightforward screamo of the Orchid/Ampere variety. There are some moments of sincere rocking that are held together by good lead guitar work. Wess’s vocals are sort of weird and only sound right half the time when the band plays live, but the little bit of distortion and EQing on this make them cut through really well. My only complaint is that the stereo panning on the guitars is a little too wide and makes the sound a little awkward. Definitely a recommended listen to those who are still interested in late ‘90s/early 2000s screamo.
