Poison Idea - Blank Blackout Vacant [1992]

Poison Idea is one of the most interesting Hardcore Punk bands I have ever heard. They have a certain uniqueness to their sound that so many bands don't even get near. Drawing inspiration from the whole spectrum of fast music, were thinking bands like Black Flag, Motorhead, Discharge, 7 Seconds, Bad Brains, and The Misfits but they have this certain edge to their music. The vocals are definitely Poison Idea's trademark, think Danzig but really drunk and happy. The guitars are great and have a lot of Blues and Classic Metal influences. Poison Idea is seriously one hell of a band worth checking out. The songs on this CD just get better throughout, you never get bored. Some really fucked up weird shit going on in the last two songs.
