TRAUMA: Self-titled: CD

Bad hardcore from a bunch of high school kids who’ve already broken up. I was going to say that there’s too much blank space between each song, but the fact is that those extended moments of silence are actually the most enjoyable part of this CD. The mix is muddled, with the guitars buried beneath the cymbal-heavy drum kit and the vocalist trying to swallow the microphone while growling incomprehensible lyrics to songs with titles like “Bed of Snakes” and “Suck My Dick.” One of the worst things I’ve heard in years.
