Unfortunately for them they were kinda mediocre at it with some pretty bad vocals. Actually, 'Acquittal' is rather decent really, all things considering. But as I mentioned casually above, this was a militant sXe band. Or should I say a MILITANT STRAIGHT FUCKING EDGE band? I don't think there are many bands that took the line 'The militant edge, it's not a joke' from A Chorus Of Disapproval's 'No Part' as serious as this band. Check out the opening of 'Soaked And Showered':
Tapping the vein of the scum I slayAnd yes, they mean xbusinessx, as the song ends with:
The final blood bath
I stand alone
Soaked and showered from the spray
Of their precious lives
Taken by me the executioner
Victorious in the name of the XMan, I doubt my edge is real enough for these straight edge warriors.
All joking aside tho, it sounds like Fasten was a bunch of kids who found the edge and truly believed enough in themselves to release their songs on 7". And that is more than hardcore enough for me. Even if the 7" is not that good.
