Today I want to show you this interesting tape of New Orleans crusters Rancid. This is their debut and it turned to be really great! I don`t know much about this band but the guys managed to create something nasty and very aggressive. Like the music, the tape looks raw too. It was made in a nice DIY way, all song titles were written by hand!
The whole material was written in the best traditions of the genre! Lovely raw and dirty sound, simple riffs, and a ton of energy. This small tape is overdosed with d-beat, haha! The guitar tone is pleasantly heavy, the same with the bass. Of course, there are no super hard structures, everything here is straight as fuck, but this is the way. Also, the vocal sounds fantastically brutal and harsh, what can I say… great work!
If you`re in search of good new tunes, this one is for you! You won`t regret this tape, because you will be smashed by honest aggression and raw noise!
Rating: 8/10 Rancid bc
Remember guys, keep the underground music scene strong by supporting the artist/band/labels.
