VACANT STATE: Internal Conflict: 7"

Mar 08, 2010

I’m assuming that this band hails from Vancouver, BC, based on what I could find on their lyric sheet. But what popped into my mind was that they love early ‘80s East Coast hardcore, especially Negative Approach. There are four charging punk numbers on the A side that shows that they really pay homage to their forefathers. The B side is one long-winded number that clocks in a hair over five minutes that reminded me something of the likes of the Germs’ “Forming” or some later period Black Flag. Based on the A side, I hope to hear more to come.
