PREVENGE / WANK FOR PEACE: Split: 7”

I lived through the earnest, suburban hardcore of the late ‘90s and early ‘00s and I have no desire to go back. If that’s your thing, that’s your thing. You do you. I’m not judging; I’m just quietly backing away. Both Prevenge and Wank For Peace are declarative and impassioned, technically capable, full of emotions and gang vocals (so many gang vocals). At times I thought, “This is musical theater, but with Marshall stacks and maybe one guy in cargo shorts.” I’m about to list the six labels that helped put this out. Six
