Bleeding Kansas
1859 (Abacus Records)

By: Mike SOS

Produced by Kurt Ballou, Burbank, California's Bleeding Kansas play the kind of frenetic, angular hardcore that God City is infamous for, so it's to no one's surprise that 1859 is a jaded, dissonant slab of artistically stretched hardcore. The seven-track affair is laden with jerky rhythms, passionate vocals, and an overall volatility that bands that try to sound this angry have a difficult time pulling off. With a name taken straight from Slavery-era U.S. History, Bleeding Kansas are a heavy band that deals with heavy topics and showcase their fearlessness through intriguing pieces of disjointed music. If you like hardcore and thinking, these guys are for you.
