DIVE "s/t" 7"
Dive were an early metallic hardcore band from the New England area. When I first heard this 7" over 10 years ago it gave me chills especially in the beginning of track 2. It has a nice mix of that chaotic metal that Massachusetts residents have been churning out for almost 2 decades and a little dose of Deadguy, Rorschach, 1.6 Band style of hectic hardcore. Members of this band went into the almighty Overcast and I believe Get High (I could be wrong about that one). Here you will find their first 7" that was released in 1993 on Evolution records. I'm pretty sure this was hard to find back then and obviously even more so now. I strongly recommend track 3: "Functional Starvation". That song has so many elements that make me want to punch myself in the grill.
"They're trying to put me out every day kicking down and manipulating so he said they're fooling you, you're fooling yourself. The hate grows stronger every time you hit the floor, the strength to continue is not in you anymore. It's so fucked up and upside down to tell you what you can't believe the workplace lives on an addiction to drink the blood of evil thieves. Evil thieves. Try to escape - there is no way - that you can stop this perfect stalemate." - Functional Starvation
