Positive Noise/Xtra Vomit

It's really awesome when both of your current favorite bands do a split with each other. When I saw this record in a distro and didn't have enough money for it, I got so frustrated, scared that maybe it wouldn't be around the next day. I finally got the ca$h for it and since my purchase, I've been playing both sides nonstop. Xtra Vomit is like if youth crew was faster and more punk, with furious fucking vocals. Positive Noise is a fucking hardcore attack, with drumming similar to Larm, heavy guitars, and sloppy yet pissed off vocals. Ryan's vocals on this sound pretty different than on past Positive Noise releases, they're really low-pitched. Both of these bands have really great messages and lyrics. The cover for the record is hand screened and looks fucking sweet, and it comes with two inserts: the first is Positive Noise lyrics over a picture of them playing live and EVERY single member of Cülo singing along, pretty rad. The second is a letter from the record label thanking you for buying the record and so on. The only goofy part about this record is that the Positive Noise side is played at 45 and the Xtra Vomit side is played at 33. I didn't even know that was possible. Anyways, an overall killer fucking release.
