Oh yeah this is cool. You bet. Yes sirree... This tape is a compilation from the Akron/Kent area in Ohio. 0-D-Fx are fast thrash. Their lyrics are gnarly as can be, they deal with pressing subjects of the day. Urban Mutants are next. They have a girl (excuse me) woman singer. I think she is the best female singer I've ever heard. Her voice is scratchy and cool as hell. They do kinda slower stuff. Offbeats strike me as a humorous band. Their music is lighter and groovy if ya know what I mean. Ah well this is a good tape.

Akron and Cleveland hardcore including Zero Defex, Urban Mutants, and the Offbeats. This stuff exemplifies why the Midwest is fast becoming the center for intense music.
