411- The Side You Cannot See: Complete Discography 1990-1992
411 is a Hardcore Punk band from Huntington Beach, California. This album was released by Workshed Records in 2014. In case you didn't know this record is a discography from the early 1990's. 411 is a Hardcore supergroup featuring members of No For An Answer, Carry Nation, Farside, Headfirst, Rocket From The Crypt, OFF!, Speak 714, The Black Heart Procession. Vocalist Dan O'Mahony is excellent in his role in 411 because he mixes melodic vocals with aggressive vocals and makes it seem easy. This is a different vocal technique for Dan O'Mahony because in most of his bands he uses very heavy vocals. The next two songs are cover songs of Government Issue and Discharge tracks. We have some really catchy Punk Rock guitars on display here. The guitar riffs are amazing as they alternate back and forth between more Hardcore sounds and more Punk sounds. The lyrics have a sing along quality and they're very clever and show the intelligence of the singer. In one song male vocals and female vocals collide to make a stand out track. The backup vocals on this album are incredibly well done. During this record we have moments that sound like the band Fugazi. I don't want to imply that 411 sounds like Fugazi because 411 is a very original band. During this time period most Hardcore Punk bands were a little influenced by Fugazi. Similar technical guitar riffs would be heard in Hardcore bands several years later. This shows that 411 was an extremely influential band. The ringing noises coming out of the guitars is unique and really draws the listener to the album. The vocalist just used some very gruff and harsh singing that I enjoyed in the last song. The highlights of this Discography have to be the guitar riffs and the vocals. 411 is a classic Hardcore Punk band and this is a one of a kind Complete Discography. Make sure to get your paws on this one.
