Warrior Tribes- S/T 7”. Debut 7” from this new Chicago band and it's a really cool little slice of hardcore. These guys have a very Chicago sound which I can definately get behind.... most importantly Articles of Faith, but I also hear other midwest bands like Mecht Mensch and (the Minnesota) Final Conflict. It's almost like the record offers this little mini-narrative, starting off with some pretty straight up skinhead hardcore-style stuff on track one (with some impressive, Choke-esque vocals) and then gradually pushing at the edges of that sound with the guitars getting more and more creative and less tethered to the drum and bass as the record progresses. By the time you get to the last track, "Iron Fist," the guitars are rarely playing power chords and the whole song gets built around these super catchy, high-on-the-neck guitar riffs. Throw in some cool packaging featuring screen printed covers, hand-stamped 7” labels with a pull out insert and you got a pretty cool little single. These are self released by the band. THIS IS THE LIMITED VERSION ON BLUE MARBLE WAX AND ALSO INCLUDES A WARRIOR TRIBES STICKER!
