I dare say that Vancouver is in the process of supplanting Portland as the punk capital of the West Coast, especially after our visit there last weekend. Killer show, great bands, and amazing punks (not to mention the carloads that were raging in Seattle show the night before). And now, enter TOTAL WAR. Blazing blown out Scandinavian influenced chaos that will melt your face for the next ten minutes - you can practically feel the studded jackets digging into your arms as you flail about...completely freed by the distorted riffs digging into your ears. Yeah, it's that fukkn good. TOTAL WAR.
