Cramped venue + jittery crowd + Coke Bust = instant, almost viral mosh pit melee. Whether you're throwing elbows in the audience or trolling YouTube for footage captured in some anarchist vegan café, it's easy to be seduced by the brute force that this Washington, D.C. quartet brings to bear in black-hole dense shit-fits so abbreviated that standard iTunes truncations are laughable. And best of all, these hardcore-punk bang shots have as much melody as they do musculature, and as a result snarlers like "Forced to Live" and "Long Gone" will stay with you longer than the bruises you collect at this particular show.
