Skarhead - Drugs, Music, Sex

Skarhead is a New York hardcore band who fused traditional hardcore with a wide array of influences. Most notably their hip hop influence which led to them coining the term thugcore. Like a lot of New York bands, they contained members of many of the bands that make up their scene especially because of the revolving door of members. To add to that, this EP features many guest spots from notable NYHC frontmen like Jimmy Williams of Max Pen, Toby H2O and Lou Di Bella of Subzero. I feel like a lot of people are turned off by this band because they try to add humor to the music and change things up in a weird way. If you feel that way, give this EP a chance. It's more or less straight forward hardcore but still manages to be creative if that makes sense. Also, I believe the NYHC riffmaster Mike Dijan played on this record. What more could you ask for?
