Straight Edge hardcore with unmistakable Polish roots, REGRESS have grown heaps since this 2001 debut, but it's the first thing I heard from the band and still probably my favorite release of theirs (though the new record, while maybe more emotional and less hardcore, is really really good). You can tell that they still have room to grow on this tape, but that might be part of why I like it so much. I snagged this from Refuse Records while in Poland in 2003 at the label's 10th birthday bash. The 20th is coming up soon (well, the Berlin show was last week and the Warsaw show is next week)...THE CORPSE, TZN XENNA, CATHARSIS, O INIMIGO, COKE BUST, REGRES and more...damn.
