This started out as me just trying to write a music review.
In January 2015, members of Detroit-based math-punk band The Armed gathered together the various bands that released music under their No Rest Until Ruin label to play a blowout show together. This was how the first No Rest Fest came about.
Before January is over and the internet really moves on the usual previews, ones-to-watch, and new-stuff-new-stuff-now-now-NOW thinkpieces that fill the gaps in content creator’s heads all day and all night, I wanted to take a moment to discuss what I consider to be the best music release of 2015. That record is The Armed’s untitled album.
