Damages

Scars

About this time last year I received a 7” from a band named All Through a Life. That 7” contained a welcome surprise of D.C. inspired hardcore. Well apparently they are no longer a band, but a couple of the members have reconvened in Damages.

Scars essentially picks up where the members left off with their previous band. Damages still draw heavy inspiration from the likes of Fugazi and Embrace, but there are also hints of noise punk bands like Shellac and Unwound found here. The two songs of this 7” are rooted in the angular riff and methodical rhythms of the early 90’s and the vocals are almost a dead ringer for Ian MacKaye; it’s uncanny.

Damages have started off on the right foot. I definitely hope they last longer than one 7” though. It would be a shame to waste the talent.
