Boston hardcore is known for speed, intensity and a ferocity unique to the Cradle of Liberty. MFP continue in the Beantown tradition, adding their name to the list of hardcore greats. These tracks rage like a rogue elephant, destroying everything that gets in the way. Early FUs, SSD and Negative FX are obvious comparisons, but MFP also bring in a heavy Cro-Mags-syle element and a particular Poison Idea type of nastiness for a powerful, uncompromising onslaught of aggression. It’s not cute and it’s not pretty – it’s a raw embodiment of sheer anger.These are the final copies of their new demo.

MODERN PROBLEMS

Demo CS Flophouse

Modern Problems are a sharp breath of pure, uncut oxygen from Buffalo, NY. Strap up for some fast, aggressive, straight edge youth crew hardcore PUNK! I could go on forever about how great this band is and how much they stick out from the majority of their peers in this sub-sub-genre, but I'll keep it short: no cheap-beats, raw recording, no fucking insta-pro-gram-shirt-core here, awesome lyrics. The songs are fast, short, catchy, hard and best of all the Uniform Choice-style vocals are executed with confidence and conviction. As a huge NO REASON fan (How good is "Walk Away"!?!), I was also amped to hear that this band shared song-writing personnel. While still totally maintaing its own vibe, this is the band that I have been waiting for since TFS put out "What We Know." These old timers have just reset the bar and have no regrets for their fucking youth!

MODERN PROBLEMS

Identity CS Black Dots

The transgenerational youth crew. An uncut brand of straightedge hardcore from the cold and unrelenting streets of Western New York. This is the third release from MODERN PROBLEMS, as the band continues a progression in the sounds and spirit blazed by Orange County, California circa the late ‘80s and early ‘90s (UNIFORM CHOICE, IGNITE). With blunt force and high-octane energy, the band proves that the conviction tied to hardcore punk, both as a music and as a movement, remains as relevant today as it was in decades past.

Demo CS CTC

Brooding uptempo sounds that have more in common with late '80s indie/new wave acts (RED LORRY YELLOW LORRY, FOR AGAINST, or Escape alumni BÜLD and ZERO POINT) as with the early dark anarcho that more and more bands have been turning their ears towards.
