The Last Five Years

Listen up weaklings. If you have spent your hardcore career posing out, and the only Black Flag record you can name is Damaged or The First Four Years.. I feel very sorry for you. You see, I am here to help and educate you, that there was a hell of a lot more to Black Flag than just DAMAGED. In fact, the last 4 Black Flag records were certainly much more interesting and superior to the "early years". Don't get me wrong, Damaged rules, but the last years of Black Flag are way overlooked, and this is a problem. I see way too many douches with Black Flag tattoos that can't name a song off In My Head. There's no TV parties, Gimmie Gimmies, or Six Packs in the last 4 years. Just pure genius/madness of Ginn. This era would be the Metal Era of Black Flag; heavy, intense, dense and progressive. The release of My War alone, is cited by many important bands as their most influential sound; Melvins, EyeHateGod, etc. It's sad that all of this is so under appreciated. So have at it. Please.

This band is fucking sick...These three dudes have crawled out of the goddamn Brazilian jungle to play some fast, blazing, hardcore. These dudes are passionate too, I can't understand or read their lyrics because they are all in Portuguese, but I can totally tell; there is no bullshit here. After releasing their Demo in like 2000, Max "625" Ward got a hold of it and was very enthusiastic about them, so he decided to release their first Self Titled 7" on his label, 625 Thrashcore. They soon started touring with What Happens Next? all across South America. They've toured over Europe, but I don't think they've played a US tour, which they fucking should. It's a shame that they aren't that well appreciated here in the US but its very much the opposite across the border. Get into it. "Play fast or die!!!"
