Genre: Hardcore

The Godfathers of Hardcore, The Cro-Mags have returned with brand new music and it’s every bit as brutal and heavy as you hoped it would be.  While only three songs long, this EP is like a shot of adrenaline.  Not only is this a must listen,  but it’s a repeat must listen.  I find myself wanting more because these songs are great examples of why the Cro-Mags are considered icons of the hardcore music genre.  If this music doesn’t inspire you, if it doesn’t make you want to move, chances are good that you are dead, my friend.  By the end of the title track, I was ready to mosh around and smash something in a pure state of energetic joy.  Each track just solidifies the legendary status of this band.  Stop whatever you are doing and go download this EP immediately.  You can thank me for it later, but right now just get it and feel the adrenaline rush through your body as you listen to this mini-masterpiece by a band that’s been often imitated but never duplicated, The almighty Cro-Mags!
