It's a little tricky for me to pin down juste exactly what distinctive style of hardcore New Jersey's Altered Boys are playing at. Equal measures of obnoxious Boston hardcore and Southern Californian punk dilute the mix, along with a good dose of Mid West attitude. Tempos switch frequently between the mid to upper pace, mixed with bouncy, harsh chords and gruff, thick vocals. This is the bands latest EP, their s/t 7"(possibly also known as The Nudge 7" I think?), pressed by Katorga Works. Black vinyl. New EP due on Deranged Records this year if I'm not mistaken. Good solid hardcore worthy of any collection.
