Debut EP by the new band of DSB and Alliance folks. But this ain't Japanese hardcore, I'd understood that this was to be an attempt at Post Regiment/La Fraction/The Assassinators/etc style of melodic European punk.

Vespera doesn't sound exactly like that but will definitely appeal to fans of that sound, for being riff-driven, strong singing, high-charge, and just powerful. The jangley guitars give this a slightly looser and more poppy feeling, but it also gives the bass more time to shine, which is perfect cause dude is clearly an amazing bass player.

Good record, recommended for people like me that can't get enough of this style of punk.
