WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT: The metal/punk/emo band buys time with an EP.
SOME WORDS, PHRASES AND CLAUSES ABOUT THIS RECORD: With changes in lineup happening quickly, Snapcase recorded a four-song EP to buy them some time and put down four songs.
The guitar work straddles metal and punk, and Daryl Taberski’s vocals are on the more ‘screamy’ side of punk, and the tone is definitely emotional, reminding one of a punk singer with a frog in his throat.
There’s nothing extraordinary about these four tracks, but there’s nothing horrible about it. It’s really an EP for completists, or people who want to document the early years of what became emo or screamo or whatever the kids call it.
NOTES & MINUTIAE: Most all of the changes in the band were members going off to finish school.
IS THERE A DELUXE VERSION: No
GRADE: B: It’s metal, it’s punk, it’s somewhere in the middle. Some good riffin’.
