DEGENERICS, THE: The Final Chapter: 7” EP

The funny thing about this is that I’d picked this up, kind of forgotten about it, and my friend Joe sent me some of their earlier stuff, which then reminded me that I had yet to listen to this. I’m guessing by the title that this might be their last release, but I’m hoping I’m wrong (or that they may be following the lead of Friday the 13th IV: The Final Chapter). Hardcore that makes the term seem not as tainted as it has been lately. They are definitely aware of their history: taking some of the best elements of lower Northeast hardcore from the ‘80s, while maintaining a contemporary sound. Definitely hope to hear more from them.
