Soul Pollution is the debut record by Warwick, NY’s Dead Channels. A self described hardcore band, the genre itself is a broad stroke, but the eleven songs contained within this album transcend the label and find themselves difficult to quantify and neatly label alongside their peers in such fashion. It seems less time was spent concerned with what category these songs would fit in and more time was spent writing them. There’s one thing Dead Channels gets that many bands lately do not….fashion has a place in music. That place is either the dumpster or in the hearts of the clueless. Same place.
