26 BEERS: Self-titled: CD

Jul 22, 2008

When I imagine great crusty hardcore punk in my head, it usually ends up sounding something like 26 Beers. It’s fast and hard but not overdone, with driving drums and definite riffage. Vocal misfires often turn crusty bands unlistenable, but the opposite is true here; the gruff-and-glassy vocal attack is perfect, and fits the music like a puzzle piece. This is phenomenal. –Will Kwiatkowski
