Day of Less - Porcaria

So, this band has a pretty dumb name in my opinion. BUT, don't let that fool you. These guys are sick. Maybe some of you guys have heard of this band called GAZA, who fucking rip dicks off and shove em down peoples throats... Well, if you haven't heard GAZA, this is where it all began. Most of the members of GAZA used to be in Day of Less, and most of DoL's albums sucked ass... BUT, this one is great. This is described by the GAZA dudes as "a gnarly collection of grungy post-hardcore songs". And I couldn't have put it any better myself. This is what post-hardcore SHOULD sound like. You can hear direct similarities to GAZA on this album, but you can also hear stuff reminiscent of less underground stuff like Tool and Converge with hints of sludge and stoner rock poking up here and there. It's spastic like GAZA, but it also is counterpointed by a strong melodic streak. You'll understand.

I highly suggest this album for anyone who's bored with the state of hardcore.
