Starting to think that on my next visit to the amazing East Coast I’m going to have to make time for checking out the scene in Buffalo, NY. Seems there’s a lot of good bands coming out of there lately. After a great demo from a while back, Resist Control get some music committed to vinyl. A few songs from said demo are re-recorded here, but for the most part, this is all new material. If Crossed Out had come from the East Coast, it might have sounded like this. Nice amounts of low end, pummeling drums, urgent vocals, a crushing assault, and timely lyrics addressing the ever-declining state of society and bank bailouts. Favorite track on here is “Modern Times,” and the breakdown at the end is a good change of pace. Comes on clear vinyl housed in a three-color screen printed cover. Which you clear-ly want.
