That isn't much now is it haha.
03:06 PM on 05/02/09
Wow. I am really impressed with The Effort. Another very promising young band from MA.
04:42 PM on 05/02/09
Disagree. While they would have fit in well on Trustkill 5-10 years ago, they are no longer the same label. These days you always hear the few heavy bands left on the label talking about how poorly they're treated. This is Hell deserves better, and I'm sure they'll find it.
