searchingforchin / the wake split cd (2002)

ontario and michigan team up for a split of noisy screamy hardcore. searchingforchin (first 4 songs) was an ontario band that played detroit alot in the early 2000s and seemed to be associated with alot of the detroit bands around that time.....anyways their sound is in line with alot of the bands playing the tech-core stuff at the time.........reminds me of a less impressive born under saturn, but with alot more "emo" influence. the wake, who is responsible for the last 5 songs on this record, was a detroit band who i saw plenty of times between 2000-2003. brutal live, jihad covers 'n all, they were a force to be reckoned with.....on record they play furious emo tinged metallic hardcore that is very complimentary to searchingforchin, however they do it with a bit more palpable force than SFC......if SFC took the born under saturn route, then the members of the wake must have been listening to alot of canephora when they recorded this, as their sound comes off in that vein alot (IMO) anyways this is a split from two underappriceated bands that got lost in the shuffle.........check it out.
