This must be the best year for hardcore coming from the UK in the last decade. Violent Reaction, The Flex, Obstruct, Sectarian Violence (partly), Stab, and now the Arms Race demo. Containing at least one member of Stab, this band takes the UK82 sound and mixes it with stompy early 80's NYHC. Arms Race is a much meaner band than Stab, and this demo is a ripper. I wish I could find a rip of this online so I could jam it when not at home. Released on Quality Control Records.
