This Chicago hardcore band's 2015 demo and tour tape from 2016 on one cassette!

Our take: Two-releases on one cassette from this Chicago band that, I believe, shares members with Cohete. While Cohete are all-go, no-slow, Mace have a lot more variation and tempo changes in their music. In particular, their herky-jerky arrangements and quick tempo changes (not to mention the all-around tough vibe) remind me quite a lot of Victim in Pain-era Agnostic Front. A lot of bands go for that sound, but Mace are one of the few that completely nail it. There's clearly something special happening here, and if these folks stick with it I feel like this is the kind of group you'll be seeing near the top of the bill at big festivals in no time.
