Vacant State “Fill the Void” LP

This is Vancouver’s answer to SSD and S.I.E.G.E. in a tug-o-war contest. And this is a full length of the Boston inspired hardcore that these guys crank out. The eps were teasers but this is the real McCoy. You can think LAST RITES or NEGATIVE APPROACH or other early burly hardcore bands, and if you are a fan of that sound VACANT STATE breathes new life into this back to basics sound which is part oi and part early American hardcore split right down the middle. The album cover artwork is Raymond Pettibon-esque. This is a record I could listen to over and over again. Even the INFEST like droner at the end. (Deranged Records – P.O.
