Barge: No Gain 7"
First release on the newly-resurrected Vinyl Conflict label, which will concentrate on bands from Richmond, Virginia. It's funny that this is on a local-centric label, because it sounds very "Boston" to my ears, i.e. the way that it mixes crunchy SSD-style riffs with faster, No Comment / Crossed Out-type parts is very much akin to several Boston-based bands on the Painkiller label. Barge aren't also-rans, though; I have a feeling if they were from New England they'd probably be on a label like Painkiller. Note: I have a few copies on limited red vinyl while they last.
