ERA BLEAK: Self-titled: LP

Ugh. Ex Triggers and all sorts of Portland faces bringing the smoke. Imagine the vocalist from Action Pact or Sado Nation backed by the Observers—or fuck it—the Wipers. Darkness, with pure fire on the vocals. I still see these cats as “kids,” but I bet they all got kids’n’jobs’n’shit, but I love it when people who have a great history up the stakes and smashhhhhhhh. This is legit fire. Props to Code Of Honor shirt also. One love, Portland squad. –Tim Brooks (Dirt Cult, dirtcultrecords.com)
