Taking their grievances with the modern world and channeling it into six furious tracks that clock in at no longer than two-and-a-half minutes, Paint the Damage exhibit the passion of old-school punk with modern frustrations. Whether it’s questioning the meaning of freedom in “Chewing the Fat” with spine-tingling grit or the spastic guitar slaughter in “Dawn Defeats the Night,” both sides of this 7” wreak with the sweet, sweet odor of sweaty moshpits, pogo-dancing and fiery contempt.

Loud. Hard. Fast. Paint the Damage’s debut 7” snarls and sneers its way into the heart of every punk purist, from the frantically strangled fret-board finish of “Wings of Death,” to the rambling bass intro in “Crowbar to Cane.” With a band line-up that has dominated the Calgary, Alberta punk scene in previous acts (Dogfaced Models, Profits of Crime), it’s hard not to to feel like a punk powerhouse is spitting in society’s face when Rob Dunlop’s gargling growls snarl over the circle-pit spinner “Not Been the Same.”
