Remember when Straightedge gangs roamed the streets of upstate NY enforcing curfews and wrecking havoc on those who failed to adhere to the ten commandments of living a clean and sober lifestyle. No? Me either. My only memories of the area is the tasty burritos I enjoyed while passing through the cold, unforgiving streets of Binghamton.
Delete History offer something quite interesting and tangible with this six song offering. The band collects local Binghamton musicians Guitarist/Singer Dave Garris, Bassist/Singer Kyle Serlington and Drummer Jason Kruger. Coalescing to form an impressive Hardcore unit. A notable follow up to their 2013 self titled ten song debut. Delete History may just overshadow what they’ve accomplished with prior bands Sepsis, The Serlingtons and Intoxicated Youth. Musically, Delete History are both chaotic and melodic. Fast paced Hardcore led by Guitarist / Singer Dave Garrris. I was especially impressed with the songs emotive vocal approach. Powerful, yet not overpowering. Emotive, yet not syrupy like many bands associated with the term Emo. The driving guitar leads spearhead the attack. Carving a path for the chaotic rhythms you’ll here on these songs. Excellent stuff. J.D.
