TIMESCAPEZERO: Total War: CS

Mar 20, 2018

Retrospective cassette pressing of this Miami metalcore outfit’s sole LP. The band recorded a couple of demos, a 7”, and this recording over the course of the ‘90s. The sound is modern for the time, but has aged better than most recordings from that era as they (either through genius foresight or dumb luck) didn’t fall into the trappings of overly compressed recordings or tuff-guy posturing. There’s a little more depth to the lyrical content than most metalcore and the songs show a lot more range than your average Victory Records band from the time. Fans of Ringworm or All Out War take note, though since this is a Finnish pressing limited to fifty copies I imagine it won’t be an easy record to track down. –Ian Wise (Judas Chair, judaschaircollective.bandcamp.com)
