STAID: Demo: CDEP

Four songs in six minutes: it’s youth crew hardcore! From the Philippines, even. This is much better than I expected it to be. The lyrics are superior to most in the genre; I especially appreciated the idea of questioning the “authority inside” ourselves as a first step in getting “one step ahead.” Screamy lead vocals with some occasional gang vocals—this is fast and makes me feel like I’m nineteen again. I like it.
