The Boston Strangler - Promo Tape 2011

1. Primitive
2. First Offense
3. Overcrowded

The follow up to their demo and the prelude to their debut LP.
Boston Strangler plays hardcore influenced by the likes of D.Y.S, Negative Fx, Deathwish and features members of Rival Mob, Mind Eraser and Social Circkle just to name a few.
I personally like this more than their demo, this really has me looking forward to more recordings.
Get on it.
