Famine - First World Problems (2012)
Famine is a 3-piece crustcore / d-beat band from Kamloops, B.C., Canada. They play in the straight-ahead really fucking crushing yet catchy vein of classics like Consume, Disrupt, Health Hazard, State of Fear, Warcollapse or Deformed Conscience, as well as showing resemblance to newer bands like Nuclear Death Terror, Massgrave or Visions of War. There's also a thick layering of early Japanese and Scandinavian d-beat influence. Some intense and well-executed rhythms in all aspects of the tunes, as well as strong socio-political and environmental themes; these dudes are really phenomenal in nailing and mixing these sounds / ideals together. Here is their first demo which was self-released by the band.
