VACANY: Empty Head: CS

This is a strange one, kind of epic, gravely punk with some thrashy parts. Band comparisons are tough but that’s not a bad thing. Imagine the downright weirdness of bands like Scouts Honor or even early White Zombie somehow transitioning into math-y hardcore like Anodyne (but not quite so esoteric) or even anarcho punk. Gruff vocals and epic song structures that don’t feel as long as they are. This is the rare cassette tape that warrants repeated listens and gets better with each. It’s odd but not inaccessible, heavy without being presumptuous, and progressive without being pretentious. –Ian Wise (Dead Tank)
