Vacant State “State of Confusion” ep

VACANT STATE are a new band from Vancouver featuring the guitar player from GOI IT ALONE. Instead of having a straight edge sound the band has gone for a more early American hardcore sound. And as a novelty the singer is from Richmond, Virginia, which is a city that has spearheaded a renaissance in that early American hardcore sound. I don’t think it’s a coincidence, but more like an influence of VACANT STATE’s sound. They remind me a lot of S.I.E.G.E. especially with the title track that has a lot of art damage similar to S.I.E.G.E.’s “Grim Reaper” or SSD’s “How Much Art”. Deranged will be doing their next ep. The songs on here are:

1. Tight Grip
2. Bleak
3. Give Up
4. State of Confusion

(Vacant State – 638 Hawks Avenue / Vancouver, BC / V6A 3J1 / Canada)
