FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC: Self-titled: 12″ EP

This started off so good, real chaotic screamy hardcore in the vein of Page 99 or Orchid. Their hearts were in the right place, and they got the right kinda artwork, layout, and format (12″ 45rpm on white vinyl with no label art so you gotta read the matrix etching to figure it out). At first I though it was lame that they put out a one-sided record, but honestly, one side is really all they need. By the end of the record, I was tired of it and glad it was over. This isn’t a terrible record, it just seems like nobody involved was trying very hard.
