Blistered - Reject Their Shame

Blistered is from Tampa, Florida. There's a definite similarity to the South Florida classics like Culture and Morning Again here.  If you close your eyes you may think it's 1995 when you're listening to this.  I like to imagine everyone in this band wearing XL shirts and camo shorts, but that's probably not the case.

This is extremely well executed in fostering a very particular sound.  All the ingredients for making the perfect "90's metalcore stew"  are here; chugging guitar, sleek bass, vocals that span from spoken to screaming...it's all there.

No lyrics are available on the bandcamp page, but my interest is peaked to search them out.  The production has a bit of rawness to it, but nothing to be upset about. I'm definitely interested in future listens.
