What a huge killer hardcore artifact by FUMES! Another great line-up from that insane punk hot-spot on Mississippi called Hattiesburg, home of demolishing Hamptons Martin's Earth Girl Tapes label, now releasing this absolute must-have tape with 7 glorious pieces of the best Hattiesburg Hardcore Punk!

Our take: Fumes is yet another band from the unlikely punk hotbed of Hattiesburg, Mississippiā€¦ home also to Judy & the Jerks, Bad Anxiety, Dumspell, and many more. Like the first two of those bands, Fumes plays 80s-inspired hardcore punk, but their sound is darker and more sinister than some of the other Hattiesburg bands. The first six tracks might remind you of any number of fast and snotty early 80s hardcore bandsā€¦ some that spring to mind for me are the Worst, Attitude Adjustment, Gang Green, and Adrenalin OD. After six rippers, Fumes end things ā€œInherited Consequences,ā€ a hardcore dirge that sounds just as classic as their fast stuff. While a lot of contemporary USHC-inspired bands aim for the tougher end of that sound, I love how Fumes focuses on speed, energy, and memorable songwriting. If you like the bands I referenced above, give this a shotā€¦ itā€™s a ripper.
