Major Damage: Sheer Mayhem 7"
Second EP from this solo project from Brandon of Direct Control / Government Warning. This was originally started as Brandon's "Boston hardcore" project, but the influences have expanded a little on this EP, and it's much better for it. It actually reminds me a lot of the early Direct Control stuff because it's blisteringly fast, just a little bit metal, and just a little bit melodic. I hear touches of everything from Attitude Adjustment to Reagan Youth to Bad Religion in these songs... Brandon almost singlehandedly brought hardcore back in the early 2000s, and this EP proves he's still got it. Even Worse Records
