Despair - Kill
Initial Records
Buffalo, New York's Despair broke up, but recorded the last songs they
wrote, making up this EP. Three of the five songs are previously unreleased.
The other two are from two of Despair's harder-to-find releases. Despair
play hardcore with a thick sound and gravelly vocals. They remind me
somewhat of the Rollins Band, only with slightly more pessimistic and angry
lyrics. The more I listen to this CD, the more I like it. Kill clocks in at
a mere 10 minutes long which will leave Despair's fans with a short eulogy
and their newfound followers craving more.
