VAKRAANT - DISCOGRAPHY
Vakraant was basically the first band I was ever in. It was a Hardcore, D-Beat inspired punk band that tried to pull all our hardcore influences into one. At the time we were listening to a lot of Kaaos, Discharge, MG-15, and Mob 47. This band was started when we were all just about 15 (almost 10 years ago). At the time, many of us didn't know how to play our instruments and it shows in these recordings. The solos are horrible in my opinion and many of the songs have clear mistakes in them. I don't know, maybe I'm just being too harsh on ourselves. In any case, this is the band that basically preceded Rayos X, as both Kaye and I were in this band. We played a lot of shows, got incredibly drunk at all of them (to the point of forgetting songs in the middle of the set), and had some good times and bad times. This CD was released in 2009 by SMYT Records and it was limited to about 70 copies or so. Enjoy!
