CRUMB: Community Service: CS

I don’t know what’s up in Vancouver these days but there is a bumper crop of quality hardcore bands happening over there. To be clear, when I say hardcore I am not talking about basketball jersey wearing floor punchers. Just tough and angry. Sure, there are some metallic-sounding riffs cooked into the mix (something I’m not usually down with), but the throat-shredding, vitriol-injected vocals take the spotlight. I just found out that this release is posthumous. Damn, I bet they were great live. Thanks to Neon Taste for making sure this band didn’t get lost to the sands of time. –Ty Stranglehold (Neon Taste, neontasterecords.bandcamp.com)
