Palatka - The End Of Irony

So you like powerviolence. So you like screamo. So, why don't you like Palatka? One of my favorites of all time, they have numerous splits with the likes of Assholeparade, The End of the Century Party, and a few others, I'm sure. There's not too much information on this band lying around, so here's what I can muster; they're a band from Florida, supposedly named after the town in Florida, and they only existed for a short while in the late 90s, something like 97-99 or so. This was their last release, and arguably the best. This album is so chaotic, so intense and emotional, that it just floors you. I credit that to short-ass songs and the fact that they have two guitarists playing completely different shit, with a bassist following suit. More than one fucker does vocals on this, so shit. The only complaint that I have about the album is that it's too damn short, but that's a shitty thing to bitch about, really.
