American Nightmare – Life Support

Twenty years ago a hardcore band American Nightmare was formed in Boston. It changed the direction of hardcore into one that was more reflective, more musical, and more meditative and created a signature that was entirely its own. This was largely due to Wes Eisold’s, the band’s front man, fascination with post-punk, especially with the bands like Joy Division and the Smiths, whose lead singers were also genuine poets, as is Eisold.
