FRUSTRATION: Paranoia and Regret: LP

Fuck yes! The opening licks hinted towards a bit of Born Against influence, which I’m all for, but suddenly the speed dial gets turned up to the likes of which BA never cared to reach. Mixed into the equation are some great gruff vocals (ala Jack Control) and an awesome concoction of Scandi-core and Northwest depression influence (think Wipers’ “Over the Edge” and you’re getting warmer). In their thanks list, they mention people who have helped them on tour, which elates me to no end; the possibility, no matter how remote, of being able to see a great, newly discovered band is what makes punk rock worthwhile to me. This record is fucking awesome, through and through.
