SOUTHERN LORD RECORDS
BAPTISTS is a highly intense Hardcore band out of Vancouver Canada. These guys formed
back in 2010 and have been blazing a trail through the Hardcore & even Metal scene ever
since. They play a high fueled angst driving style of old school Hardcore with some old
school Punk influences mixed within. I am glad to see a lot more bands bring back this
crushing 80's - 90's style of Hardcore music. I grew up listening to a lot of music like this
while in high school and skateboarding and miss it a lot. A lot of this new Post Hardcore
stuff doesn't do it for me as much. BAPTISTS are in no way a throw back band, they take
those old influences and twist and mold them into their own sound. These guys are extremely
hyper active and never stop to let the listener catch up. The pulse bounding Hardcore
smashes head on with the Punk attitude and out comes a massive wall of chaos & mayhem.
There is at times an almost Southern vibe to some of the music which adds another flavour
to their sound. I loved this band and hope they travel through Colorado, so I can check them
out live, which I am sure has to be insane. It's as if they were channeling G.G. ALLEN
through early DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and meeting up with BLACK FLAG.
