New Music Tuesday: CDC - 2015 - End

CDC is a four piece hardcore punk band from Lansdale, Pennsylvania, America. End is their second EP, their fifth recording and the first since 2009. CDC play a no frills, straight ahead brand of hardcore. The guitars are thrashy and heavy but also have a rare rhythmic focus. I find myself bouncing my head a lot more than I thought I would. The singer has a lot to do this with, he doesn't have the typical hardcore bark, he has a more fluid shout most of the time. There is still plenty, almost too much chug, but these songs go a long way to carving out their own, almost groovy, space. If you're looking for some well excecuted hardcore punk that will both get your head bobbing and the pit moving, CDC's End will serve well. Stream here.
