INITIAL STATE - ABORT THE SOUL (1994)


Chaotic, thrashy, female-fronted hardcore, which rose from the ashes of South Carolina's Antischism. The band relocated to Austin, Texas, after their quasi-dissolution, reforming under the Initial State banner and releasing only one album before parting ways again. This is some pretty amazing stuff, especially for 1994 -- forward-thinking, aggressive, angular, and harsh. Sort of reminds me of Submission Hold with more balls or Calloused with more dynamic variety. Kinda rare.
