The Abusive Action demo came highly recommended to me by a couple of friends. This demo is excellent “97” style hardcore in the vein of bands like Floorpunch and In My Eyes. Actually, I would have to say it is more like In My Eyes if anything. Fast, to the point, straight edge hardcore clocking in at less than ten minutes. The only thing that is annoying is the same old bland straight edge lyrics; but for the music, it fits. Definitely check this one out.
Also, look into Abusive Action at their label, Crucial Response’s, website. CR says the new Abusive Action 12” will “truly redefine the meaning of hardcore.” Yeah, sure it will.
