Mind The Gap from Leipzig got a new cd out and once again it is all d.i.y. First thing I recognized was that my fave from the precursor “koerper und verstand” is on this cd as well and even a little better this time.
This time their style is more old school than last time. Less experiments, more in your face. Mostly straight up hardcore with a lot of drive and a raging speed. the drums are very powerful and tight. The guitar sound a little conservative for my taste but the vocals are superbly pissed off. And just before the music is about to get monotonous they come up with nice break or extra melody. I like it. They really got a punch and some good songs. My new fave is “ten straight shots” I guess. I really don’t see no reason why so many hardcore bands that are so much worse get so much more attention…
