Slag: Slag 7"
Debut 7" from this Chicago band (now RIP?) who had a great demo a while back. Their demo had strong UK82 vibes, and I guess that I still hear that here, but it's a lot more straightforward hardcore. This is the mean shit... just stomping, writhing hatred, no posing, no trying to ape a particular band or style, just raw go-for-the-throat hardcore. When they slow things down on "Liar" your fist is in the air whether you like or or not. Recommended.
