Is there enough Orgcore in your life? No? Well, take a gander at Eau Claire, Wisconsin's Arms Aloft and witness a key three of their many influences: Dillinger Four, Jawbreaker and Hot Water Music. Granted, you and I wouldn't think that such a potent, gravelly and melodic punk rock sound would co.


Is there enough Orgcore in your life? No? Well, take a gander at Eau Claire, Wisconsin's Arms Aloft and witness a key three of their many influences: Dillinger Four, Jawbreaker and Hot Water Music.

Granted, you and I wouldn't think that such a potent, gravelly and melodic punk rock sound would come out of the state, but here we are, listening to a seriously promising band who takes from the aforementioned to create a sound that occasionally provides similarities to those bands and None More Black. After all, check out opener "Dreams Are Dogs That Die in Their Kennels" -- you've got a forceful, deep-throated singer and a chord progression so bouncy this company's probably moshing.

This very demo contains five songs that should get your fist pumping and your body moving. Scope it!

I can't wait to get home and check this out based on the review. My fuckin work computer doesn't even have a sound card. Bogus.

I had to call the city of Eau Claire at work once and their hold music was "White Lines" by Grandmaster Flash. Sweet.

MattRamone (November 30, 2007)

This demo kicks an insane amount of ass. I smell a No Idea/Red Scare co-release in the future.

Dudes should do a split with No Brass.

This band fucking rules live. See them if you live in the area.
