The Beast

When Outbreak first came out and was a big deal I, along with many other coremen, loved them.  Their fast, straight-forward, angsty brand of hardcore was very relatable.  Fast forward a few years and the band has kind of vanished.  Fast forward another few years and now we have East Beast out of MA.  To be honest I generally wouldn't be into this style of hardcore any more, being that it's borderline amateurish (just read some of the lyrics), but something about these songs just clicks with me.  The songs are short and fast, thrashy, and very amateur as far as lyrics go, but I LOVE IT.  Every once in a while you need to listen to something a bit more simple and this band nails that.
