Test Of Time - Refugee 7"

Not to be confused with the current Boston straight edge hardcore band of the same name, here's the sole 7" by an early '90s Connecticut hardcore band called Test Of Time. Recorded in 1991 and released in 1992 on Inner Rage Records out of France, this is their only release besides demo's. Inner Rage Records btw was the label run by Jean-Marc, the original singer of Drowning. I believe the band quit soon after this 7" was released? Which is a shame, this is great hardcore with a lot of groove and melody and some sweet bass-parts. Unfortunately my 7" is missing the insert, so I have no idea what the lyrics are about, and I also have no idea who was in this band and what they did before or after Test Of Time. So if anybody has any information, please share! Anyways, enjoy this underrated band!
