"Recession "Time, Arithmetic..." CD Review"

"Blood & Ink records doesn’t miss the mark when choosing their bands, and they did a great job with these guys. Making their debut on Blood & Ink records, Recession is showing that they’re not out to be like other noisecore bands. One great thing is that they lack what seems to be the requisite sloppiness and skill-lessness that one seems to find in most bands in this genre. In fact, the album is an onslaught of well-written melodic offbeats and breakdowns that are extremely catchy. Time, Arithmetic… hits the ground running with Masterpiece Theatre, and sets the stage for eight more tracks that are extremely fun to listen to. Although not earth shattering, the album is very good, and the fact that they can play their instrument s makes me look forward to seeing them grow as a band. Anyone who’s a fan of early Spitfire or Converge should buy this album." -Matthew Moore -


"Time, Arithmetic & Other Elementary Subjects Not Well Learned" LP out on Blood & Ink Records. Distributed through Lumberjack Distro.



Band Statement:
"We are about what music was about... before the trends that so easily steal passion & creativity. We are just as much a victim and a product of this generation as everyone else & we choose to live in spite of it. We'd rather play on the floor than on a stage. This is our art. This is our message. This is who we are. We don't do it for pride or for money. We do it for the love of expression & of all things heavy."

Band Bio:
"Formed during late 2004 and calling Nebraska home, THE RECESSION's direction quickly came into focus as they discovered their natural style. The band combines both mathy and chaotic elements into their aggressive sound, forging new ground while still recalling a mid-late '90s aesthetic. Their live shows are full of intensity and angst leaving anyone who witnesses craving more. With the release of their debut full length, "Time, Arithmetic & Other Elementary Subjects Not Well Learned", The Recession captures their volatile and passionate sound with an unmatched ferocity, sure to earn them a place alongside predecessors and contemporaries of the same lineage." -Blood & Ink Records
