My Lai are the crown jewels of punk rock mayhem. Many bands in this same vein have come and gone but this Chicago group is very easily the best ever. Imagine Mohinder, Born Against, and the Swing Kids mixed together and they practiced six hours every day. There are so many vicious guitars it will leave blisters on your fingers. There are so many obtuse and brutal drum parts that will leave even more blisters on your fingers. The vocals and their blend of a shriek and a growl will definitely make you want to punch a couple of holes in the wall. Now we caution you because this will probably cause you to break a few bones in the hand, but hey it will make you forget those blisters.

yeah, these guys are good. Mohinder + Swing Kids + lots of practice is a good description. A little too (sub)genre-hopping for me, perhaps, but I'm definitely going to listen to this again.
