NIGHTGAIN: Self-titled: 7″

On its face, this is another Discharge clone band with the template and political haiku lyrics intact. Thing is, they ratchet up the velocity of their delivery such that they come out well above the average pack of punters mining the same hill and will surely give their Scandinavian and Japanese brethren pause. Tunes are tight, heavy, and fast as fuck.
