4 bands covering a lot of ground. Army Wives: The Khayembii Communiqué meets Sunny Day Real Estate. To Be Gentle: Level Plane Records gut-punched post-hardcore meets twinkly mid 90's emo. Alas: Portraits of Past with more an indie rock halo. Mirin Bide: The Orchid / Ampere school of grindy, visceral hardcore catharsis. A fucking plus.
Honestly this might be the best 4 way split ive ever heard. Incredible modern day screamo, a true treat. The vinyl is also beautiful this is an incredible release all around! A co release with the amazing ZBR
a band that definitely developed with my musical preferences. while their earlier releases had a hardcore attitude, this is where they delved into low tuned atonal and dissonant extreme metal madness. this record shaped my future musical taste in so many ways and after all this time I am still loving it alex-dissonance
portrayal of guilt takes the sinisterness of black metal and the emotional anchorage of screamo and creates the most evil-sounding, despair-filled, hopeless record you could imagine. Perfectly crafted and always makes me come back for more, I can never get enough of them. Haydin
