VARIOUS ARTISTS: South America in Decline: CD

Six Weeks are like the National Geographic of punk when it comes to putting out records. Especially with this …Decline series. First there was America, then Japan, and now they’ve gone south of the border to deliver the goods from what’s happening there. And it’s pretty known now that the best in hardcore is mostly occurring outside the lower 48. I’m not dissing what’s happening here, we’re talking numbers okay. This collection is weighted in the thrashy side, with such bands like Ratos De Parao, Dios Hastio, Discordia, and Apatia No. Then there’s some more punky and poppy type bands like I.R.A., Pirexia, and Enemigos De La Clase. A pretty good comp that you’d be a fool to overlook.
