DESTRUCTION MADE SIMPLE: Terror Stricken Youth: CD

So far as I can gather, this is a local (San GabrielValley) hardcore band with an album put out by a label in Pittsburgh. While their lyrics aren’t too shabby, something in their sound rings hollow. Maybe it’s the absence of any feeling of conviction emanating from the songs. Maybe the production’s just a tad too clear. Either way, it just ain’t quite doin’ it for me.
