I often compare the Southern California moshcore band GOLIATH to the Southern California crustcore band DYSTOPIA because, well, they sound a lot alike (except of course GOLIATH has 100000x better production and they can actually play their instruments). Aside from how they dress, they’re much more similar than not. Evidence:
Exhibit 1: DYSTOPIA “Backstabber.” Put them on tour with XIBALBA, dress them up in ROTTING OUT snapbacks, and you could have 2013′s most popular tr00 hxc band.
Exhibit 2: GOLIATH “Lost Cause.” Swap out their mesh shorts for AMEBIX backpatches, have them play some filthy punk rock flophouse in North Philly instead of Chain Reaction, and they could be the next big thing in punx music.
Someone on my Tumblr apparently does not see things this way, though. It is always entertaining to watch someone experience massive asspain over something as trivial as comparing two bands, so I thought I would share this series of asks from him and Michael from GOLIATH:
My recommendation to Michael on how GOLIATH can inflict maximum asspain on overly-opinionated crust punx
