4.0 out of 5 stars Lost In The Shuffle -or- Let's Just Go With Every-Core December 4, 2012
By Khyron
Format:Audio CD
As if more evidence were needed that New York was the next Seattle of the mid-nineties, Orange 9mm reminds us that there was a deluge of brilliant, agressive, often unclassifiable music from the East Coast 15 to 20 years ago. This, the band's first EP and only release on Revelation, home to such HC heavy weights as Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand, Into Another and Inside Out amongst many others, finds Orange 9mm in a refreshingly raw state and stands as another contendor for best introduction to Post-hardcore for the uninitiated.

Credit the almighty Don Fury for the 'basement as a producer's best friend' sound as Fury, more so than any other producer, truly had his finger on the pulse of 90's Hardcore. Before the glossed-over, fuzed-out and compressed stamp that the major label producers attepted to force on hardcore (I am speaking to you, Terry Date), producers like Fury and Fred Bestchen attempted to present bands in a natural, un-molested state. Fury's work with Mind Over Matter, Quicksand and Snapcase helped write the sonic formula for the second generation of hardcore: Heavy emphasis on vocals and rhythm section over somewhat muted twin-rhythm guitars. Those elements are alive and well here and Chaka Malik's distinct and very accessible vocals absolutely shine on this recording. 'Driver', with its rhythmically driven shouts/screams stares rap right in the face and manages to steer clear; offering a glimpse of a vocal style embraced by The Deftones and 'Give A Monkey A Brain' era Fishbone. Larry Gorman's drums pop like Tim Redmond's from Snapcase, though Eric Rice's bass is somewhat less prominent than Whiteside's was on Snapcase's 'Steps' EP. Shame, as that recording is the gold standard for HC rhythm sections.

5.0 out of 5 stars For such a short cd..... July 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
...It is really wonderful. My favorite song is "Dry" which is a fast song with the vocals kind of distorted. Cutting and Draining has a heavier edge to it. All the other songs are more focused on use of vocals rather than pounding guitars, which is very rare in a band like this. If you like this band try Incubus or (hed) p.e.
