EPIDEMIC: Losing Control: EP

Apr 29, 2016

Wasn’t sure why decade-old recordings were finally seeing the light of day, but it seems that after the death of their guitarist Matt Frado the remaining members agreed to remix a few of the songs they had shelved. Killer UK82 vibes from Boston brings to mind Icons Of Filth or some of the more aggressive U.K. punk bands of that era. I would give a nod to Punkcore stuff, but this is way looser and more aggressive than most of the U.S. spiky punk. I’m not usually a fan of unearthing shit by bands not long gone, but this one is well worth your coins. Nice layout and cover, too.
