So, the year is winding down and I'll be doing some posts on my favorite releases of 2010, as opposed to some gigantic list.

Anyways, CEREMONY released their 3rd album ROHNERT PARK earlier this year through BRIDGE 9 and damn what a record.

Hardcore is being reinvented and it's most minimal and primitive ideology is being embraced by bands like CEREMONY, FUCKED UP, and the sadly now deceased ST. DAD, leaving us with music that doesn't sound any specific way, but is no less hard hitting and in your face.

ROHNERT PARK carries with it the swagger of early American proto punk and garage bands such as THE SONICS or THE MONKS, who were, in my book, more "hardcore" than any band ALTERNATIVE PRESS is pushing these days.

Anyways, enough ranting. This album is bound to be a classic and already is in my book. Snag it from BRIDGE 9 on white vinyl for $12.00. 

Does it get any better than that?
