Cancer Bats (out of Toronto) are one of those bands whose shows are always well attended even though they have not had the benefit of a label released full-length album yet. They are a band in the true spirit of punk who have not sold out to the man in order for commercial success. They have gained their audience the old fashion way: touring. For their fans, you have nothing to fear the album sounds very much like a 'live' recording. The music is urgent, the vocals are raspy and the energy level is high. It is punk music that shows the effects of the band members coming together after playing with other bands and being influenced by different genres of music.
