The best $2 I've dropped in a record store in ages, this 11 minute WHITE WARDS demo is an absolute stunner. They combine the noisy self indulgent hardcore approach utilized by fellow Olympians SEX VID with the nihilistic spewings of GEHENNA and drench the whole recording in mystery sauce so you have to dig deeper to find out what the hell they are doing. A side note, last Friday I was driving home from Seattle, and planned a stop in Portland to break up the drive and hang out with friends...I was surprised that there weren't any shows that piqued my interest in PDX-Punk City on a summer Friday, but oh well - I had a great night anyway. Then today, while ripping this tape, I internetted WHITE WARDS and found that I drove through Olympia just as they were destroying a house with the Bay Area's MIGRAINE and ECOLI. Sometimes I lose, but these eight songs will guarantee you a win, oh fine Terminal Escape reader.
