No Power: No Axis 7"
One of two concurrently-released 7"s by North Carolina's No Power. While clearly inspired by bands like Disclose and Destino Final (particularly in the heavily reverbed vocals), No Power mix things up with some quirky changes and noise rock elements that really separate them from the standard d-beat pack. With its extremely raw recording and bruising sound, this sounds almost like Disclose matched up with totally brutal noise rock like Brainbombs and No Balls... totally sick. This release looks to be pretty limited as well, so grab this now before it's gone. Inkblot / Self Aware Records
