Do you have WHAT IT TAKES to SURVIVE? When the shit hits the fan where will you stand? It's SNIPER CULTURE, loaded with high-velocity Teflon™-coated riffs this chicago affinity group takes the ski mask off with a new record. Their true intent: to leave none standing. Hardcore is back...learn to mosh or face the wrath of the SNIPER CULTURE. 300 one-time pressing of this 7 inch with the first 100 on army green.
Our take: Debut 7” from this raw and nasty hardcore band out of Chicago. Sniper Culture has a bruising sound that’s not unlike their label-mates Armor, but with insanely raw production. The first few times I listened I thought Combat Rock had a vibe similar to Urban Waste, but then I remembered that on the Urban Waste 7” it’s only the guitar that sounds blown out and fucked; on Combat Rock, pretty much everything sounds like that. You’d think such nasty production would blunt a hardcore band’s impact, but it works well for Sniper Culture. When they’re raging out, they can slip into a Larm-esque blur of speed, but those moments serve as an appropriate balance for bits like the oompah drumbeat on “Terminators” or the blazing riff in “Brad’s World.” Limited to 300 copies, so if you like your hardcore raw, nasty, and mean, I’d suggest to grip this soon.
