Colin from Standards Records recently brought Adult Crash to our attention and we’re really psyched he did. Comparisons to bands like SSD and Septic Death (among others) are not without merit. Wall of sound riffage, shredded throat vocals and blasts of thrash make Adult Crash stand out in a sea of all too often generic hardcore. Here’s what Colin has to say about “Unfinished Business,” the band’s first record.

On Unfinished Business, their debut 12” EP, Adult Crash plays a powerful brand of hardcore, with the dramatic, rhythmic build-ups of Bl’ast!, the concrete-thick guitar work of SS Decontrol, the blunt vocal delivery of early Agnostic Front, and some left-of-center thrash flourishes a’la Septic Death. Far more than just a Frankenstein monster of well-tread influences, Adult Crash has a seamless, naturally flowing sound that can only come from veterans who have truly internalized the craft of hardcore songwriting.

Featuring a cadre of San Diego/Chula Vista HC veterans, including Tim Gonzalez of Amenity and House of Suffering, Adult Crash has the credentials and musicianship to convincingly deliver their unique sonic onslaught in spades. Mandatory listening for all true believers in the HC arts.

    Tim’s dedication to music, to hardcore, to people in need is so admirable. The sincerity and genuineness he lives with carries over into Adult Crash. Thanks for posting this.
