Divine Right: S/T 12"
Posthumous full-length from this Chicago HC band, and it's a shame they broke up because this really blows away their earlier stuff. Their first 7" was pretty standard bulldozer hardcore, but as they move up to the big vinyl the band change things up quite a bit, varying the tempo almost constantly and even using some cool distortion effects to break up the monotony of having someone shout at you for two whole sides of a 12". It's a really interesting, ambitious full-length that expands on your expectations without ever feeling forced or contrived. Highly recommended. Deranged Records
