I still love me some really heavy, fast bands. Problem is, I can’t stand ninety-five percent of the other people into really heavy, fast bands (even more so in the live setting). That’s what I love about In Defence. Hard as hell, but substituting the macho bullshit that comes with a lot of this stuff for light-hearted goofiness that isn’t afraid to poke fun at the genre. And besides, musically speaking, they absolutely rip. “Straight Edge Hangover” is the anthem I’ve been waiting for, for a long time. One of the best hardcore/thrash bands going right now? I think so. Tacos forever.
