S.X.R: Feelings of Expiration: 7”

I really wanted to like this one because I’ve been through Redding, CA, where these guys are from—and know how much it sucks—but they play some pretty boring straight edge hardcore with dopey lyrics and lots of E chords and slow parts and breakdowns and blast beats. They do have a song called “Macho,” which refutes macho bullshit attitudes. I’ll commend them for that.
