VICIOUSXREALITY: The Bonding Moment: 7”

VICIOUSxREALITY have been keeping the straight edge alive in Poland since 2017. With a youth crew sound, showing particular influence from the band Insted, VICIOUSxREALITY deliver a series of straight edge anthems for the devoted. From the pictures on the record sleeve, it’s clear they have a loyal fanbase, but I wasn’t feeling the same excitement listening to the record that the folks pictured seemed to experience while watching “The Bonding Moment” live. –Paul J.
