Braille - S/T

Braille is a hardcore band from Philadelphia that displays a noisy, blown out sound. I actually started to feel a little bit of an early 90's Ebullition records vibe partially attributed to the melodic nature of the guitar and commanding vocals.  There's lots of spots on here where the vocals take a break and let the music speak for itself. 

"Illegal Zoo" was by my favorite track of the four. It has a dark melodic tone that gives way to a classic upbeat riff.  The contrast is great and works quite well.

The production does a great job of translating a noisy soundscape that attacks you in that "in your face" sort of way that this music should. 

Have a listen here.
