Civil War [The Netherlands]

~2005-2006 [RIP]
This three-piece ska-core band was a very short-living one. They have released this Split EP and toured Europe together with Braindead and Once Over. Probably there was also a demo recorded in 2005 but i can't be sure.

Lennard - guitar and vocals; Yerünti - bass and roars; Eriq - drums and screams.


They mixed oldschool hardcore, anarchopunk, ska.
For crs fans. Good songs, bad that only 4.
