MUS114 BLAZING EYE - Brain/ Lonely Corpse 7"
LA's BLAZING EYE return with two new tracks of devilish hardcore punk in the vein of MOBS or ZOUO. The Japanese hardcore influence is prevalent on "Brain" which has an infectious guitar riff- vocal scream dynamic punctuated by a perfect Bristol Beat which will have you screaming like a bloody mess without you even noticing. "Lonely Corpse" on the flip has a stomp dirgy beat perfect to dance like a worm on a devastated city ran by cyborgs. A perfect punk single with two really catchy and memorable songs which show BLAZING EYE at the top of their game.

Saw Haram at Oklahoma's Everything Is Not OK III festival, and have never seen a show get more fucking insane. Haram were killing it, people were literally flying all over the place, including the vocalist. But it's more than that. Haram stands out as one of the most culturally relevant and important bands in the states, challenging issues of cultural and social oppression for all marginalized peoples. Vocalist Nader also sings in Arabic and stands full force against the racism and religious phobia faced by middle eastern americans, issues that have relentlessly plagued our country and people, even before 9/11. I highly recommend reading his interviews, I challenge all to join and support them in this effort. I hope I've done an at least passable job representing them here. I also consider myself lucky to have seen them. Ariele Betterton
