For all you old bastards who lost your trust in HC many years ago when HC got synonumus with Metal and general crap mostly from the NY scene. Here’s a Canadian band that I got introduced to by Per Thunell(Filthy Christians, Protes Bengt and now in a great HC band called Bruce Banner) last year. I almost shit my pants when hearing this. At last a great HC band that sounds like HC and not metal!
CS vocalist sure sounds alot like FU’S John Sox. But all in all this is just plain awesome and now I’m enthusiastic about HC again too. And NO this isn’t just a rehash of the good old days. Actually this is in many parts better then many old HC bands you worship. Just admit it! Isn’t it great when kids can inspire old farts who was responsible for the inspiration for them.
Stand out track: It Takes One To Know! That tracks makes me…ARGGGGH!! For those of you who’re not too keen on the HC stuff still might enjoy: There’s Something Wrong With You. From Toronto, Canada. Website: www.careersuicide.net.
CS if you need a drummer sometime please give me a call!

Ok! Now I know why CS is so fucking great! Read this from flexyourheads website:”I think the problem most bands that try and play “early 80s” hardcore have is that they listen to early 80s hardcore. That’s not to say that I don’t love that stuff or draw vast inspiration from it… but think about it: musically, those early hardcore outfits appeared out of nowhere, made something out of nothing. What were they listening to? That’s what we listen to. You know, music.”
saw this band live 1 time a couple years ago. they opened for FORWARD. i was NOT impressed at all. there was so much hype surrounding them, i thing i expected too much. as a result, i never bothered to get any of their records. this stuff you have here is way cool!! snotty, fast PUNK with great, youthful aggro WITHOUT being any jock-o BS. ill have to check out more of their stuff
and tell Per i said “Hello” & have nothing but major thanks for him autographing my Protes Bengt ep when he stayed here a couple years ago. Bruce Banner ruled at my friends basement gig that day, too!!!
Definitely one of my favourite local bands here in Ontario.
Wedge, I’ll take some beers with Per next week. Where are you from in the States? Or will he know who you are just by telling Wedge said hi?
dude, their new lp is killer.
this slab o wax is boring, not sure why so many canadian bands keep getting all this hype, maybe the marketing trolls have invaded the punk scene…
Thanks for posting this!! I love CS, they combine the sounds of newer hardcore with the old classics. Great vox too
Career Suicide are the only hardcore band that matters!
