I just noticed I've never posted these things, and had to change that immediately.

Dangers are a hardcore band from California that formed in 2004. Since then they've been active on-and-off, though always deliver when they get together. Currently they've got tour dates lined up, and a new EP due next year (finally), so be sure to look out for those things. Dangers comes from the same scene that spawned other bands such as Graf Orlock, Ghostlimb,  Comadre, and Punch, so are semi-comparable to those bands, though still are quite definitive on their own. In a genre such as hardcore which is known for being pissed-off, to be known as a band within that genre as being extremely pissed off is no easy feat. But Dangers pull it off, and holy shit is it intense. Their instrumentals are always impassioned, with well-crafted songs and riffs, though what really gets me is the vocals. They are incredibly charismatic, while still being ridden with anger. This suits the lyrics, which I absolutely love. Lyrically, they are socially and personally aware, but with a witty sensibility and delivery. They are incredibly well-thought out, and certainly worth looking at. These guys probably have some of my favourite lyrics from any hardcore band, regardless of sub-genre or era. Enjoy.
