E.D.S: Probation: CS

Super dark, pummeling hardcore stuff with nary a good thought or deep breath in sight. Bleak and unrelenting, particularly in the lyrics department, but there’s only four songs on it, so the punishment’s over with pretty quickly. I like the “bandana, leather gloves, sleeveless Hüsker Dü shirt” aesthetic the singer’s rocking in the sole band photo, very charming. –Keith Rosson (E.D.S., no address listed)
