WASTED POTENTIAL: Nervous Conditions: 7”

Mar 22, 2016

These Canadians provide an energy-packed hybrid of punk and metal with thick, chunky guitars and wailing solos being the order of the day. It’s not reinventing the wheel but the four songs are invigorating and fun, easily keeping my attention as they rage and thrash in equal measure. With a tag line of “Gluten Free Crust Punk,” this is a band with a sense of humor although I admit to struggling to truly understand the meaning of the songs, even with a lyric sheet. What is unusual is that the last two sentences of both songs on the side A are exactly the same, not something I’ve ever encountered before.
