March 2012 Reviews

No Tolerance (Full Set) from hate5six on Vimeo. Bad Noids Demo Fast, distorted, hardcore that reminds me a lot of H-100s. This would have fit in really well with that crop of late nineties bands in this vein. I want to hear more. Iron Age The Sleeping Eye LP Tee Pee Records This is Iron Age at their finest. A great combination of their earlier NYHC influenced material with the more recent, more “metal” influences. The songs are fast and heavy without a lot of stupid metal bullshit besides one instrumental interlude style track. Two earlier tracks from their eps are rerecorded as…

Government Warning-No Moderation

Government Warning No Moderation LP Feral Ward Records Another great record from Government Warning. Sharing members with the excellent Wasted Time and Direct Control, this band plays hardcore not dissimilar to many early southern California bands. Battalion of Saints seems to be a heavy influence on this particular album. Unfortunately, it looks like this one is out of print. I need to review this shit faster!

Government Warning-Arrested

Government Warning Arrested 7” Grave Mistake Records Government Warning have been one of the best bands of the past five years. Featuring members of Direct Control, they play fast California hardcore similar to TSOL, Adolescents, and Battalion of Saints. A few songs on here are heavy and melodic, reminding me a lot of the first Adolescents record. Other songs are faster, straight forward hardcore. This is an excellent record and a great introduction to the band for people who haven’t heard them. Still available from Grave Mistake Records.

Public Safety

V/A Public Safety Compilation Maximum Rock N Roll Records For a substantial period of time this record has been hyped to death. At one point there seemed to be some mystery about who exactly was even going to be on the compilation. The long wait wasn’t really worth it for me. This isn’t a bad compilation necessarily; there are some great bands like Direct Control, Nightmare, and Signal Lost. Most of the bands don’t really seem to bring their A-Game however. Beyond that, even the bands I don’t enjoy are so unpleasant that I find myself jumping around. The best…
