Bloodshed – Baltimore, MD
November 19th 2002
This was my first time seeing any of these bands, the first time I’d even heard of Selfish, it was my first (and I think last) time at the Bloodshed, and it was a great night. Even though I only went to the Bloodshed once I do miss having it around because it seemed to be a great place, this show was a fucking lot of fun.
Tragedy – This was my first (of three) times seeing Tragedy and it’s still the best I’ve ever seen them. They were simply stunning, they were on their game and it was perfect. Everybody that saw this show/this set knew that this was something special right here. Tragedy that night was simply a band that couldn’t be ignored.
Municipal Waste – Municipal Waste was the big take home band of the night, they were just insane. This is still the best (or maybe 2nd or 3rd best) I’ve ever seen them. Tony crowd surfed while doing Captain Ron, there were lampshades flying in the air while they were playing, it was just amazing.
Selfish – Selfish is a hardcore band from Sweden and they did blow me away. They were so fucking good. After seeing them I went and bought as much Selfish stuff as I could find, still today this stands out as an out of this world set. I wish I’d gotten to see them again.
Kerum – Kerum did their thing, their set was good but nothing mind blowing. A sold opener.

A Page Of Punk, Drunken Sailor Records, hardcore, music, punk, review, Reviews, thrash, Werewolves On Motorcycles
This split is probably the most insane Drunken Sailor Records has ever put out, at least it’s the most insane thing I’ve ever heard. A Page of Punk is an insane Japanese thrash band in the vein of Nice View, Breakfast and Razors edge. If you look at the track list you may think they get an unfair amount of songs but almost all of their songs are only seconds long. They don’t have time to fuck around so they blaze through their side of the split with amazing precision. I fucking love this band so much! Werewolves On Motorcycles have a fantastic fucking name but the band doesn’t quite live up to it (to be fair who could?). They remind me of an early 2000’s hardcore band that blends in rock and a touch of screamo. They’re pretty good but I feel I’d be way more into them fifteen years ago (fuck typing that makes me feel old as shit). They’ve only got four songs on here but they make the most of it with them. Werewolves On Motorcycles put forth a good effort and a great name, they were good but their side of this couldn’t come close to touching A Page Of Punk’s. If you like hardcore, fast punk, thrash or power violence then I highly recommend checking this out, it’s pretty incredible all around.
