OBLIVIONATION: Demo 2012: Cassette

Three tracks of pissed-off hardcore punk from this Massachusetts-based quartet. For only three songs, this demo is filled with riffs sure to inspire furious bedroom moshing and steering wheel pounding while driving. Lyrically, the band talks about dealing with mental health issues in “Compulsive Paranoia,” ignorance in our society in “Proud to Be Dumb,” and telling the Westboro Baptist Church to fuck off in “Closet Country”—all sentiments I can get behind. Based on these three tracks, I’m stoked to get my hands on Oblivionation’s forthcoming LP, and you should be as well.
