Green Beret- The Cult of State 7" review
Green Beret- The Cult of State 7” review
Boston hardcore plus old-school D-beat equals one of my favorite current bands. With a slightly different approach than their 12” but with the same hard-as-nails anti-war vibe, they plow through six ragers in as many minutes, commanding attention with a droning, bleating voice that sounds like the voice on an air raid siren. The drums are no doubt in the front seat driving the song, but everything flows together so well that it’s difficult to say which is more important, in terms of instruments. This is everything a hardcore punk 7” should be.
