DIRTY SOUTH APOCALYPSE/ASTHMA ATTAQ: Split: LP

The Dirty South Apocalypse side comes out swingin’: awesome spazzy hardcore with great vocals that remind me of Employer, Employee but with a raw, dirtier edge. You know how there are a few metalcore bands that started off good before they got lame? They kinda sound like one of those bands. But oh, the record’s going all good and now the last song hits and it’s this totally wimpy boring emo suckfest. What happened, guys? Asthma Attaq are really cool spacey hardcore with all kinds of cool, trippy parts that sound a bit like Tarantula Hawk or Yeti, and it even kinda sounds like Yes a little bit. It’s really interesting and it held my attention throughout. This record is worth getting, for sure.
