This Chicago band delivers real hard tunes on what I suppose is their debut demo. 2nd Self boasts 4 tracks of raging hardcore, simple and aggressive with tons of energy. There is some thrash feel in their music which I like, and some of the riffs and hooks are above average. I dig that the band is far from boring, but they know that hardcore should be delivered raw and uncompromising. Perfect example that you don't have to stretch out songs to sound good if you know what you’re doing. Side Split have really earned my respect with that demo. Download it!
