CØNDITIØN: Subjugated Fate: 7”

Jan 31, 2018

The term d-beat is becoming almost meaningless in that it’s being used to describe so many divergent sounds. Yet Cønditiøn typifies what I’ve always considered to be d-beat in that it’s hard to imagine any of its members not having serious Discharge obsessions. All four songs are brutal in that classic d-beat style with harsh vocals and Discharge-influenced drum beats. The 7” has excellent packaging, too. It’s not to be missed for fans of this time-tested brand of hardcore. –Art Ettinger (Iron Lung, ironlungrecords.bigcartel.com)
