Living on the West Coast my entire life I haven’t really seen a lot of bands that don’t tour out of their home state (it’s fairly unrealistic to hop in the car for a 37 hour drive just to see a show), so I was somewhat skeptical to see a CD showcasing bands (most of whom I had never heard) from Pennsylvania… come on, California, DC, Washington, yeah those would be good but I figured Pennsylvania would be mostly filler. I was badly mistaken (and slightly embarrassed).

Kickstart Audio has released Pennsylvania, USA Volume 2, and even though a few of the bands sound… well… crappy… there are some that completely stand out, begging for attention.

A Life Once Lost blew me away with their song Prepare Yourself For What’s About to Come (imagine Kurt Ballou from Converge taking over guitar in No Innocent Victim), mewithoutyou Four Word Letter, Zolof The Rock N Roll Destroyer Scream and Run (as much as I wanted to hate it, I had to smile; but probably for only one song), A Trunk Full of Dead Bodies Finger In Your Throat (lots of potential), Nightmare Scenario Halo (a unique group of punk rock kids), Boy Wunder Praise Song (horrible recording, but now I know why I have been hearing so much about them), Sound of Reverse Fuck Your Car (great instrumental stuff), Missiles of October Money Shot (aggressive punk rock kids), and In The Echo of You We Agreed That Cupid Was… (delightfully chaotic metal, my personal favorite on the disc).

There is no better time to buy this compilation CD; it’s on sale over at Kickstart Audio!
