Dry Spell: S/T 12"
Debut 12" from this Richmond, Virginia hardcore band. Though the members of the band are pretty young, Dry Spell remind me a lot of the 80s hardcore bands who grew up a little, started listening to (good) hard rock, and began trying to incorporate those influences into their music. Dry Spell, however, do a much better job of retaining hardcore's intensity than many of those bands did. The end result is pretty much hardcore with a rocked-out edge, reminiscent of bands like Swiz that graft hardcore onto a more song-based structure. Killer stuff from Vinyl Conflict Records, the same folks who bring you No Way Records. Vinyl Conflict Records
