Bear Proof Suit- Science Is Dead 7”. This is some killer driving Midwest Punk. Bear Proof Suit not only manage to court an early 80s hardcore sound, but build upon it with some choice mid 70’s proto-metal riffage (like Blue Oyster Cult or Sabbath) and a cool Wipers-like non-hardcore/psyche/surf groove attack. All of this is delivered with a monstrous wall-of-guitars blast intended from the start to blow speakers and minds. They prefer a systematic riff destruction over tunefulness or hyper speed and play driving music that’s smarter than it lets on to be. Fans of anything from the Laughing Hyenas to the Necros, Die Kreuzen or Negative Approach will dig these guys.
