Everyone was playing fast, and every new band seemed to want to play faster. The only hooks came in the form of melodic guitar leads influenced by DISCHARGE or ENTOMBED and the songs were abstractions about war. This seemed to be the world that PEDESTRIANS rose out of (and I don't mean Chicago as much as I mean the year 2003). The were catchy and aggressive, but you could still shake your ass - in fact sometimes you just couldn't help yourself. Two killer 12"ers and two EPs (one flawless and one really good) followed this demo - all worth tracking down if you missed the boat the first time.
