Having spend a couple of years releasing their own music and touring as much as possible, Torrance, CA's The Orangeburg Massacre unleashed Moorea, an explosion of noisy southern-tinged hardcore mayhem in the vein of Every Time I Die, Normal Jean, and He In Legend.
Decibel Magazine gave Moorea an 8/10 saying the album "possesses an indefinable amount of energy" and in closing, "fuck yeah!". Those are sentiments we can get behind!

Quite possibly the most full-on album I've ever listened to. Intense, and then some. 'Digital Tarpit' could describe both the track and the whole album: high-pitched guitar squeals that make your fillings itch coupled with merciless, suffocating heaviness. The Avenell-esque vocals top it off perfectly.
Brilliant - punishing, but brilliant. jim_fuego
I’m two years late to this sideshow, but I’m glad I found a spot In the back corner of the tent by the hotdog stand. I’ve been on a mathy/core/noise kick as of late, and this fits the fucking bill. A head banger through and through.
