SHUT IN   
"OLD HOMES"   
DREADWIND RECORDS

SHUT IN is a crushing new Hardcore band out of Iowa / New York. The band is fairly new
to the scene, forming back in late 2011. They have been creating music to perfect their
sound, but kept it on the down low until they released their first single. This 4 song release
was put out back in August 2012 and is in 7" record form. They have a bunch of different
styles listed on their bandcamp page for the record. These guys have a very cool Modern
Hardcore sound that takes elements from old school bands and newer Post hardcore bands.
They have a very angry aggressive fast paced sound through out most of the songs that kind
of take me back to early
SICK OF IT ALL & AGNOSTIC FRONT with a little SHEER
TERROR
thrown in. In the slower more melodic parts is where the Post Hardcore
influences come into play. There isn't that much of this, which I was glad, cause I'm not a
huge fan of Post Hardcore. I guess the majority of their sound does have that gritty street
Hardcore sound out of New York from the late 80's and early 90's. The vocals of Vincent
Bennett are done in that New York style as well. I love New York Hardcore over any other
style of Hardcore, so I loved these guys! The band features members of
THE ACACIA
STRAIN, BURY YOUR DEAD, TOO PURE TO DIE, OCEANO
& FOR THE
FALLEN DREAMS,
which are all great bands, so you know your in for some high quality
Hardcore here! I can already see the windmills & karate kicks flying at their shows!!!
