State of Confusion


State of Confusion 6.3 Million Acres LP

Every time I started thinking this was generic thrash, S.O.C. Would throw some twist in to surprise me. A thoroughly home-produced LP (the sound is okay though, but the silk-screened cover is definitely tacky — literally!), there’s plenty here for HC fans — with little or no metal.

Although largely generic thrash, there are moments when STATE OF CONFUSION show that if they stick with it, they could develop their own sound. This is not to say that this tape isn’t tight or powerful (which it is), but it’ll take awhile for such a young band to develop their “personality.” (This applies to 90% of today’s new HC bands.) Overall, a good start.
