I first heard Horror Show when rummaging through Deathwish's site for bands to listen to and read this description of them: "Raw and emotional traditional hardcore from Philadelphia." So I say to myself, "Wow, I like traditional hardcore, and I'll be going to college in Philadelphia next year, I sup.
I first heard Horror Show when rummaging through Deathwish's site for bands to listen to and read this description of them: "Raw and emotional traditional hardcore from Philadelphia." So I say to myself, "Wow, I like traditional hardcore, and I'll be going to college in Philadelphia next year, I suppose I should listen to this band." I downloaded "Inconsiderate Me" off of their first CD/EP, Our Design, which blew me away; it was fast, loud, and angry hardcore punk rock - I immediately ordered it. So here is the followup to Our Design - Holiday, a four-song EP that is currently vinyl-only, and one of my main reasons for starting to actually buy vinyl records and even getting a new record player just to listen to this record. The lead singer of the band has recently spent time in jail, although I have heard that he has been released, but due to parole issues conflicting with touring the band probably will not continue on much longer.
Been in this daze for days / wind has blown the coldest rains on me and washed my dreams away / pondering if this could be / the ending of my losing streak / I'm hanging out to dry / and I think I've caught a coldA wonderful EP; I reccomend this to anyone who is a fan of American Nightmare/Give Up The Ghost. Although, if you don't have a record player, I'd suggest starting out with Our Design first, which is available on CD.
