Okay, what makes this band stand out? Absolutely nothing. They're basically the new Number 12 Looks Like You, except instead of mostly metallic metalcore with grind influence from the start of the decade, it's deathcore with grind influence from the end of the decade. For some reason, it's apparently "grind jazzcore" but fuck that shit, it's deathcore.
Good deathcore mind you. The song Keeping It Up Rules because it's like a Rifles At Recess song shrunk to one minute in length.

Knut is pronounced, "Ka-noot," don't ask me, they're faggoty Swiss folk. Anyhow, Norma Jean? Botch? Fuck that shit, throw some juice in the freezer and put that in your milk.
Basically, really really krieg sludge influenced metalcore album from 2001. The best, the best, the best!

By request, here's some Christian deathcore. Kind of like Rifles At Recess meets Despised Icon with oldschool death metal riffs... and all for the glory of Christ!

Released on Care Core records, or whatever fucking record label put this out, In 1996. Showcasing some of the scenes current big name hit makers, The Promise Ring, Sarge, Rainer Maria, The Dismemberment Plan, Braid and even no namers such as Supporting Actress, Roscoe P. Soultrane, Helen, Sideprojects, Chester and Mary Me playing total mushy love songs that make you feel completely cute on the inside from the first go. Really, this is a pretty intense comp and you have to wonder where a lot of these bands ended up at, some of them are even GREAT! The Cap'n Jazz cover song done by The Promise Ring (featuring Vocals from Tim Kinsella himself) really sets the tone of the rest of the albums, the two disc set, if you will. It's completely fast paced, hyper active, melodramatically charged punk at its finest. Songs by Campanula Blue add a little heavier twist to the mix along with Playstation (I can't tell if this track is real though, all the rest seem to have an identifiable quality and this one is just whacky, but the lyrical content and music seem VERY serious), Palilia adds a really low fi tangent into it, hell all breaks loose though within the first few tracks when Roscoe P. Soultrane plays their brand of soulful 3rd wave ska but it's Jarbaby's track 'i Love A Parade' that screams 'HELLO PLAN IT X, DID YOU FORGET ABOUT ME?', it's pretty much the grandfather to all those acoustic acts that ended up on everybody's Ipod after Juno was released. But it's really interesting when you hear Speed The Day's cover of The Supremes song 'You Can't Hurry Love', it's so bad that it's good in a very good way, complete with female vocals. I love it, just listening to it makes me happy. The comp ends with the Kinsella's covering their own song, ha. Have a blast putting this on and enjoy yourself. Drink some tea, doodle some funny characters fighting the XMen, have a blast.
