Combatwoundedveteran - I know A Girls That Developes Crime Scene Photos
Not the kind of music I usually post or even listen to, but I have a soft spot for Florida bands. Combatwoundedveteran play a brand of hardcore punk that is heavily influenced by early screamo like Orchid and Jeromes Dream and grindcore. Extremely sonically abrasive music. Not recommended unless you already enjoy (early)screamo, emo-violence, grindcore, or hardcore punk. With that said, most people seem to think that the lyrical content is mindless dribble - while true in some cases, this band was actually very socially pro-active and most of their lyrics reflect as such. They dealt with social issues such as gender roles, materialism, politics, etc. Most songs fall short at just under a minute, while some songs, on their earlier release, pass the 6 minute mark.
