EVERYTHING IS RUINED: Self-titled: CD-R-EP

Raw punk songs of jagged love and disillusionment with life. Female-fronted vocals in a gruff This Is My Fist/Crimpshine-style. The music, though, is a more gritty, rock-based punk than it is the pop punk style of those bands. There’s a desperate, half-mad feel to these songs that will just grip your soul. It’s the sound of a candle burning at both ends. Sadly, that’s a truer statement than I wish it to be. EIS had broken up before I even received this to review. So get this while you still can. Really, don’t delay.
