In the years following Hardcore-Punk's zenith (`88), it was somewhat unclear what direction the underground scene would take. While bands like Warzone and Bad Brains (when they were functional) continued to wave the Old School banner, Black Flag, Youth of Today and Minor Threat had long since fallen apart. Though there was clearly a void, it was not clear who or what would fill it.

And then in January of '92 it didn't matter. Grunge brought the underground into our living rooms and turned your 12 year old sister into a mumbling, misunderstood punk with green hair . With the paradigm clearly shifting, the search began anew for music with integrity; something your parents would hate (my mother owned Badmotorfinger before I did) but was palatable at the same time. That search ended for me in Hardcore.

Abandoning both the music and the message of Hardcore-Punk, Quicksand's first LP, Slip, is properly regarded as the Genesis of the Post-Hardcore movement. Slip still retains Punk's "less is more" formula of song writing, while simultaniously managing to sound both poised and dynamic. Credit this dichotomy to Walter Schreifel's and Tom Capone's droning, distorted twin rhythm guitars, juxtaposed with a staccato rhythm section that drives and propels each track like a sonic diesel locomotive. Easily the most accessible Post-Hardcore singer, Walter, while fully capable of screaming, defers most often to singing on the ragged edge of screaming; managing to find melody where there simply should not be any. The result is a vocal delivery that is as focused as it is destructive. This is not rasp, this is aggressive melody and has more in common with Maynard James Keenan than any of Walter's Hardcore contemporaries.

This album changed hardcore forever. After this album, everyone either tried to emulate Quicksand's style, or just gave up. It made everyone look around at the state of hardcore at that time and say, 'what have we been doing this whole time?!?' This was the first record of its kind, though Swiz and Fugazi were probably influences. If 'Dine Alone', 'Fazer', 'Freezing Process', and 'Lie and Wait' had any more groove to them, the world would have to just stop spinning. Walter's voice and lyrics and his syncopated vocal rhythms serve to strengthen the already-massive musical force of their music. Tom Capone is one of the few guitar players in the world who should actually be playing guitar solos, and Alan Cage's drumming style is unparalleled. These four seasoned hardcore vets (the various members were at one time or another in Youth of Today, Bold, Beyond, Absolution, Gorilla Biscuits, Shelter, Moondog, Burn, and other great bands), all got exactly what they deserved by being signed to a major, and this debut release scarcely disappoints. The only let down here is the lack of vocals on Baphomet ('if you were mine...'). The vinyl version (good luck finding it) even has a better mix of 'How Soon is Now?' than you'll find on the Dine Alone promo single. Pick this up as soon as possible and feel whole again.

This record bridges the gap between Sunny Day Real Estate and Rage Against The Machine in the best way! It's the best melodic hardcore record you'll ever hear. Even Deftones fans will step off once they've spent a little time with Slip. An addictive record with precise, meaningful lyrics. Came out at the height of new school NYC hardcore scene...on the heels of Gorilla Biscuits and 7 Seconds, and dusting everything that's come out since. Quicksand. Just to say it makes me smile.

Criminally unnoticed and sublimely loud, Quicksand's "Slip" seems to reach inside itself for each song, summoning up the power behind each great guitar riff. Quicksand exudes the same type of weird energy found on records by the Deftones or Rage Against the Machine, where passion seems mysteriously imbued with intelligence.

Like Deftones' singer Chino Moreno's infatuation with The Cure, or RATM's Zach de la Rocha's hang-ups on delicate matters like politics, Quicksand possess melodicism and subtlety to go with their heavy metal affectations. Just check out their fuzzed-up, palm-mutes-like-a-punching-bag cover of "How Soon Is Now?" by the Smiths for proof.

Following a terse drum roll of greeting, "Fazer" opens the album by laying down an irresistible groove perhaps worthy of standing as a mosh pit classic, while the squirrelly riff on "Dine Alone" will get heads nodding all the way through to the climactic bridge section, where heads start flying. Likewise, other cuts, like the title track, don't really heat up until their own fiery endpieces, where guitarist Tom Capone's unique and satisfying soloing style metaphorically puts the pedal to the floor. Other great moments are "Lie and Wait," with a guitar part like an uncontrollable kerosene hose; "Unfulfilled," a song you'll feel you've known forever (in that good way in which the knowing is something drawn from the subconscious rather than something radio- or culture-born); and the sinister, chaotic instrumental "Baphomet."

Talk of inspiring effect on future musicians and waxing poetic on the significance of screaming aside, "Slip" is an underground landmark album for anyone who's ever enjoyed the clever side of the distorted electric guitar.
