The Swarm / Morser split ep

The Swarm were a band that was started up with Kyle and matt from Grade who recruited Chris Colohon as the singer just after Left for Dead broke up. Kyle had found some young kids to play in the band one of them being Mike who would go on to drum with Chris in the Cursed. In fact some bands look at the Swarm as a precurser band that would become the Cursed. The idea behind the band was to do something similar to the German crossover scene in bands like Acme and Morser. So this split with Morser was a big deal. The record was released by Per Koro in Germany and Spiritfall in the States. The songs on here are:
1. Last Rites
2. Familiarity Breeds Contempt
3. Smooth Running Order
