Instigation: S/T 7

Debut 7" EP from this Chinese(!!!) hardcore band, though I think at least part of the band are ex-pats from other countries. Honestly, I think a band from China would be forgiven for even approximating what hardcore sounds like, but the Instigation are actually ripping! This reminds me a lot of stuff coming from Sweden... in particular bands like Sista Sekunden that seem very inspired by early 80s hardcore, but also have a little bit of influence from a slightly more melodic punk sound. At any rate, this is fast, riffy, and has really great production... if you dig fast, catchy hardcore, and are intrigued by the idea of a band from China this one gets my seal of approval.
