Token Entry

Genre: Old School Hardcore

Just got recommended these folks on allmetalforums, nothing like a bit of old school hardcore. Token Entry formed in Queens, NY back in 1980 and released two killer full lengths in the last half of the decade. The thrash influence is very evident throughout their discography, more so on Jaybird than From Beneath The Streets. Later, Dr. Know, previous guitarist of Bad Brains, would join up and produce The Weight Of The World, which had a fair bit more funk influence than Token Entry's earlier releases, but that album has no place on this blog. Great band for fans of Raw Power, Bad Brains, Criminal Damage, Minor Threat, Suicidal Tendencies, and Nuclear Assault.
