Knife The Symphony and Swear Jar – Split

Knife The Symphony and Swear Jar – Split
Phratry Records – 2013
Rock, Punk, Core
Rated: **

Swear Jar recorded their tracks to tape for zero dollars in the home of an unsuspecting vacationing family. Vocals and overdubs were then recorded later in the basement of an unsuspecting woman as she went on vacation. Long story short, if you go on vacation, Swear Jar will make a record inside your house. Well, nuff said. Why add anything to such a brilliant press statement? Knife The Symphony did no such thing though; they are the nice boys here and went to a proper studio to record their three tracks. But both bands are getting their influences from the indie core scene from the early nineties. The heavy aggressive and highly energetic punk, hardcore and everything with the word post in it scenes. It is loud, it is noisy and it absolutely right smack-dab in the middle of your face. So, should you drive by some house one day and hear some blood curling screaming coming from the inside. It doesn’t necessarily have to be some kind of insane killer having fun in there. No, it just might be Swear Jar recording a new album…
