Kiss It Goodbye
She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not...

As far as I know, this band, made up from the members of such respected hardcore units as Rorscach and Deadguy, already broke up. They did leave some legacy behind, namely, besides some singles and EP's, this particular recording.

In terms of aesthetics and attitude, Kiss It Goodbye draw the line all the way back to Black Flag's most hateful moments. Indeed, this stuff is more hatecore than hardcore because such level of self-loathing is downright unhealthy. While this over the top attitude is by no means unique, and neither is the band's musical approach, consisting of thick, gnarling guitars, jagged rhythm section and torturous vocals, not many bands can deliver it all in such candid and earnest way. The band's song writing abilities provide plenty of interesting moments to keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through. Like a number of other notable bands like Eyehategod, Unsane, Today Is The Day, Kiss It Goodbye have turned pure hate into an art form and successfully thrived on it.
