Demo-on-vinyl from this tough hardcore band from Florida who play tough, catchy hardcore a la 86 Mentality. Highly recommended!

Our take: Demo-on-a-7" from this Florida band who might be the best-kept secret in hardcore. If they weren't so isolated geographically I have a feeling you would be seeing this band on all of the big regional fests, because they are just killer. They play a style of hardcore that's kind of fashionable right now--a bruising, skinhead hardcore style in the vein of Negative Approach and 86 Mentality--but they're far more than just an also-ran. They just have that certain je ne sais quoi that so many bands lack... this recording is explosively powerful, and the songs have this subtle pop sensibility that permeates everything. While plenty of bands like this sound good when you're listening to them, Klout write songs that you actually remember once the turntable stops spinning. Klout aren't reinventing the wheel by any stretch of the imagination, but they are definitely one of the most exciting pure hardcore bands I've heard in a while. If this band sticks around I think that it's only a matter of time before everyone else catches on. Highly recommended.
