skurm - "unkind" (2011) download
they only came down to play halifax once, which was during harbour water fest last year. out of all of the bands I saw that weekend they were a definite highlight. I still listen to this record pretty frequently even a year later & now that they've broken up I think it's safe to throw this up for free download so everyone can hear it.
one aspect of this album that differs from a lot of hardcore albums in the maritimes is the production value. this record sounds really ridiculously good in a "we actually went into a studio" kind of way, especially the drums which are full of double kicks & all sorts of rad fills.
skurm don't waste any time. each song is short, fast as fuck & pissed. I think they probably had some definite grind influences.
for fans of detestation, makiladoras, missed life (another long dead band that story was in) etc.
