Straight to Hell are from Rhode Island, while Balance of Terror are from New York. Together they create a vicious and great sounding split 7" that will certainly appeal to all those folks that are into the Talk Is Poison, Deathreat, From Ashes Rise, No Parade camp of hardcore. Well done musically, and packaged in a black and white
cover of course.

Hardcore punk. That's what you will find here. Balance of Terror play straight forward US style hardcore. Straight to Hell are similar but are slight more burly and 'brutal' than Balance of Terror. Both bands serve up four tracks of fast pissed off hardcore. I believe both these bands have broken up and I would think this 7", along with other BoT and StH vinyl, is out of print or very close. If I had to pick one over the other I go with Balance of Terror because I'm more familiar with them. Straight to Hell are not bad by any means, but to choose I go with Balance of Terror. A good, but not essential, 7" EP.
