MANIC RIDE: Self-titled: 7”

Full-throttle hardcore from Sweden. Very much like Poison Idea but with an early 2ks twist. Unfortunately there’s no discernible comparison to Bl’ast from whom their namesake is taken from (the album Take the Manic Ride). Pity. It might have made this record worth some more spins. –Juan Espinosa (Refuse, refuserecords.bandcamp.com / manicride.bandcamp.com)
