Tracklist:

1.Intro/Numb

4.Sold Out
5.Hate Them
6.Anxiety
7.Pressing On (Gauze)



Symptom are a brand new Boston based punk/d-beat/noisy hardcore band clearly influenced by Japanese bands such as D-Clone and Gauze while adding their own attitude and style into the mix as well, making for something that caught my ear instantly upon listening . In fact, the band closes this excellent release out with a ripping cover of Gauze's "Pressing On" and absolutely nails it, and their original songs aren't anything to take lightly either. Raw, harsh and uncompromising, this is an outstanding first introduction to the band and I'm looking forward to seeing what sonic destruction they craft in the future. Highly recommended.
