Sore Points harken back to late 70's punk where the lines between punk and hardcore were blurred. Think Middle Class "Out Of Vogue", Subhumans "Death to the Sickoids" and the like. It's fast, poignant, yet intelligent and articulate. - https://sorepoints.bandcamp.com/
"Sore Points’s furious and relentless strumming is tighter than a fifth-grader’s ginch. Displaying a raw authenticity that harks back to punk’s London inception in the late 1970s, Sore Points’s playing might be aggressive, but the group’s tracks boast a complexity and variation that belies the genre’s three-chord reputation.

Ultra Gash are a trio of local punks leading an unhinged ‘80s DIY hardcore revival. Mainstays in the hardcore scene, the trio carry the very same no-frills, I-wear-my-hate-on-my-sleeve attitude of their predecessors. They’re guaranteed to deliver a primal rancor and lingering melancholy to showgoers. - https://m.sledisland.com/2017/ultra-gash
"Canadian punk played by three down in the mouth degenerates. Calgary band blast a sound that is as loud as their city’s mid-winter streets..."https://noisey.vice.com/en_au/article/ryz8dk/blare-a-track-and-work-into...
Fast, loud, trashy punk.
