Sect is your pretty standard hardcore group, but that doesn't make them any less worth checking out. Produced by none other than the masterful Kurt Ballou, and delivered from Southern Lord, Sect are an intensely heavy group with plenty to say. "Comprised of an international cast of scene veterans, who cut their teeth in that formative moment of political, cynical, antagonistic extremes, SECT unites vocalist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Burning Love, Left For Dead), guitarists James Chang (Catharsis, Undying) and Scott Crouse (Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance), bassist Steve Hart (Day Of Suffering), and drummer Andy Hurley (Racetraitor, Fall Out Boy, The Damned Things). The result of these musicians' alignment is a caustic, riotous, belligerent style of vile hardcore fed by a boundless well of socio-political vitriol." I'm partial to "Crocodile Prayers."
