RECLAIM: Break: 7”

Four songs of mid-tempo hardcore that remind me a lot of Paint It Black, especially in vocal delivery. Label bio compares them to Count Me Out but the label should also be embarrassed for saying Reclaim have a “Black Flag work ethic” in the bio. That is one of the more absurd things I have ever read about a newer band and there is no band it is true of—let alone a band who only just released their first single. This is a style that takes a lot to impress in the twenty-first century and this band is very, very good. Strong hardcore single here and I am looking forward to hearing more. –Mike Frame (Extinction Burst, extinctionburst.bandcamp.com)
