xFilesx - "Excruciation"

xFilesx from New Bedford, MA. Excruciation is 22 quick tracks of pissed off straightedge hardcore that doesn't really sound like straightedge hardcore. There's a major range of tempos with a lot of slower riffs and the recording is totally different from any of this style of hardcore that I've heard, which really does give it a different end result. It's basically fast hardcore with an early 80's sort of flare rather than a youth crew sort of sound, but the slower riffs give it a unique edge and keep it from coming off as generic.
