Hailing from the mighty state of Wisconsin, punk/ska act Atrocity Solution somehow manages to build a crust punk bridge between Choking Victim and Leftover Crack. I know that's a big variety of music, but bear with me. The group's latest, a seven-track EP entitled Tomorrow's Too Late, keeps a crack rock steady beat throughout.

"The Protest Song" lives up to its title, although lyrically it tends to come off like the ramblings of a crazy homeless person. Heck, they don't even bothering using apostrophes. These guys don't conform to your grammatical rules, man. Still, the music rips. "Change the Channel" adds in more ska. The rest of the EP oscillates between those two styles.

Not to belabor the point, but these guys really, really sound like Leftover Crack. The vocals alternate from snotty spit-takes to demonic, throaty screams. The guitars are either faux-metal crunchy or upstroking ska. The only thing missing is LC's sense of humor, which went a long way towards turning Mediocre Generica into a classic. Give me a joke song about Satanism. Hell, even songs like "Born to Die" had a tongue-in-cheek quality to them that made them better. Atrocity Solution's biggest problem isn't plagiarism--it's that they're trying so hard to cultivate a certain sound that they don't seem to be having any fun with it. Somebody buy these kids a Star Fucking Hipsters record.

This CD was actually released in 2009. Yes, Atrocity Solution sounds very much like Choking Victim/Leftover Crack, but what the reviewer fails to mention is that this CD was actually recorded and produced by Skwert of Choking Victim. Wouldn't you want to lend a hand to the next generation, given the chance?

For Christ's sakes, the last 2 things the reviewer listened to were Fugazi and the Nine Inch Nails. Of course he's gonna dislike this EP. Atrocity Solution is a young band with a lot of spirit, give them a chance and make your own decision.

Tent City re-released this year, per the press release.

This didn't come out in 2010, I heard it last year. I pretty much agree with the reviewer..a few lighter moments a la "if the laws of God just make ya pissed.." would've been a deft touch

Still, I plan on watching to see if/what they put out next

I know that it's been about nine years since that Mediocre Generica write-up was posted, but I just saw it for the first time and it's probably the most annoying, poorly-written review I've ever read.

I didn't read this one, nor have I ever listened to this band, but I can say that their name is almost as bad as that album cover.

None of this is really the fault of this particular reviewer, but it's what came into my mind.
