The (Intercontinental) thrashin’ hardcore punk squad called The Instigation was formed back in 2010 in China and the current members of the band are spread in London (singer – Simon), Shanghai (drummer – Tyler), Kobe and Tokyo (Japanese guitar and bass players – Tommy and Toshi). “No Way Out” is their second EP and they totally killed it here.
It’s tight as hell 80’s hardcore punk rip-off – Black Flag, Poison Idea, Gauze, etc. – with decent British accent vocals, mad blasts of Japanese hardcore riffage, and insane cover of Reagan Youth’s anthem “Degenerated” to hammer the nails completely. Check this out and thank me later.
