Botch probably need no introduction, but just in case you are unaware... well, if you're unaware just track down a copy of "We Are the Romans" or the DVD of their last show, and hear/see for yourself. No description will really suffice adequately- heavy, precision, challenging, technical, screaming, destructive- all are spot on elements of this Northwest unit that often gets called Mathcore. And if truly they are, then next to no other band I've ever heard called Mathcore could actually be mathcore because there isn't any way those other bands can hold the match to light the candle one would hold to them in that old analogy.
I digress, here's an interview from Status Magazine #12, summer of 2000.
If any of you out there have old zines you would either like to get rid of or share for scanning purposes (and then I would mail back to you) get in touch with me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk about that some more.
