The UK has been ripe with quality hardcore of late.  Here is the new EP from London's Stab titled, 'Blindness and Lies.'  Released on one of the members' own Quality Control Records, this 7" shows a step forward for the band.  While they still have that Ripcord/Heresy vibe, the songs here offer a little more variation than previous releases.  Past recordings were mostly fast, balls to the wall hardcore, the songs here still have that sound, but aren't afraid to slow down for a good stomp part.  This is my favorite release by the band and can only assume they'll get better with time.

Red vinyl limited to 200 copies.  Cool fold out sleeve that is very similar to the second pressing of the Violent Reaction EP the label released last year.
