The magpies in Pg. 99 didn’t necessarily define an era, but the Virginia band’s turn-of-the-century output did expertly synthesize the most potent strains of hardcore that preceded it. 2001’s majestic Document #8 is like a ’90s primer for neophytes working their way backwards through the punk canon, a frayed gateway opening onto the Locust’s proggy powerviolence and Angel Hair’s squealing post-hardcore and In/Humanity’s explosive emo-violence. Those genre tags ultimately describe the same thing: transcendent intensity, that feeling of a brain on fire with hope and fear. It is pure punk beauty, wound up and wild.
