DAGGER: Hexes: CS

Northwest Indiana’s Dagger rip through seven songs of stripped-down, torrential hardcore punk. Think of the dirty boot of Pick Your King-era Poison Idea being licked clean by the subservient tongue of Dutch legends BGK. If you’re in need of an ass kicking then jam this cassette in your tape deck and drop your pants, but remember: twice for flinching. –Juan Espinosa (Not Normal Tapes, notnormaltapes.bandcamp.com)
