ENTROPY: OUT OF SPITE
Google provides two definitions for “entropy.” One definition derives from thermodynamics and results from the unavailability of a system’s thermal energy for conversion into a mechanical work. In other words, energy that is less able to do work…useless energy. Another describes a lack of order and predictability. Attributes of each definition can be loosely connected to Orange County NY’s Entropy, but neither can fully describe the band. Entropy (the hardcore-punk band) approaches song writing while adhering to the 2nd as they speed through unexpected song-structures that may seem to lack order upon first listen. However, as you spin their debut full-length again and again you realize they merely disguised this “disorder” as their no-bullshit brand of melodic hardcore-punk via 10 hyperactive/constantly moving tracks that leave no room for steady breathing. Since their swift introduction earlier this year, the quartet shows no signs of stopping and continues to gain momentum. They bring a self-propelling energy and drive that many bands of the genre lack and, contrary to the 1st definition above, the energy is useful and keeps them moving. Along with no-bullshit tunes comes no-bullshit artwork which they pressed and printed 75 times via Station 3 Records for your listening pleasure. Listen/purchase the album HERE.
