This EP embodies everything I love about split releases, two bands playing exciting and enjoyable songs, without overlapping musically greatly or clashing at all.

To those of you who already know and love Attack! Vipers! and Astpai, this split does exactly what it says on the tin; eight tracks, including one Nerve Agents cover by Astpai, all in the excellent hardcore stylings we’ve come to expect from these two bands.
For those of you have been unlucky enough to miss [...]

The Measure [SA]

January 29th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

The enduring memory I will have of The Measure is their singer, Lauren, roaming the halls of the Holiday Inn on the last night of Fest 7 with Britain’s own ambassador for alcohol, El Morgan. They were supervising parties or something, while simultaneously partying very hard themselves.

The Riot Before

January 28th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Long story short, I was stuck in New Zealand for five months with only about four CDs, one of which was The Riot Before’s previous EP, ‘So Long The Lighthouse’. Fortunately it was amazing, so I jumped on their new album like a junkie on his next fix.
They’ve evolved from the lead singer’s original acoustic [...]
