notes: Missouri’s Canyons, Tigon from the California Bay area and Foreign Theaters also from Missouri to bring you this 12in split titled “Can’t Have Nothin’ Nice” As we’ve come to expect, Canyons four tracks combine metal, hardcore, and rock perfectly. These tracks combine the raw passion of hardcore with heavy groove driven guitars for a sound unique to them. Think of them as Every Time I Die mixed with Clutch, Down, Coalesce, and Botch.
Next Tigon brings their mix of 90′s screamo, hardcore, metal, and punk. Think Botch, At The Drive-In, Engineer, and The Minor Times. These songs are heavy, technical , chaotic, and powerful all at once. Foreign Theaters finishes off this split with four songs that instantly bring to mind old Touch and Go Records(Jesus Lizard, Shellac, or Therapy?) or late 90′s discord played heavier. These driving mid tempo tracks just pound away from beginning to end with no let up. Think Young Widows, Melvins, and a tinge of Kylesa. (from The Ghost Is Clear Records).
Seriously, this split brings the mosh and most certainly is a contender to be on many album of the year lists. Download this and break some windows. Thanks so much to Bobby from Canyons for letting me post this and get the word out!
