BLANK STARE: White Hell, White Corpse b/w White Race-White Waste: 7”EP

Feb 15, 2007

I think they’re going with a theme: white people suck. There it is, in the lyrics: “the whole white race is a fucking disgrace.” I say, “Your postulate is perhaps incorrect. What about Al Quint, editor awesome of Suburban Voice?” (They thank him in the notes.) I don’t think he’s ever done anything bad in his life (I may be wrong. Please let it not be so, Al.) and the skin he was born in just happened to be white. Hmmm. I’m gonna have to disagree with the band’s thesis. (Assholes come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and colors.) What I don’t disagree with is that the band completely rips in a Dead Nation, Cut the Shit! sorta of way: chunky hardcore with plenty of traction and acceleration with no heed of the finish line.
