Well i thought i'd post a band grouped with crust, but other people would like. Contravene started in 1999 phoenix arizona. My introduction to contravene came this summer when i was at a north side crust show, no exaggeration EVERY dreaded person there had a contravene patch so i strolled up to the distro's and found a used split 7' between them and a band named UPRISING. It only had one song 'The lies they want us to swallow' and i was hooked, I have since purchased their 'a call to action...' LP, a must have!!
luckily they have a bunch of fan pages:

BE warned these arn't chuck berry riffs!

Well, it's about 2 years too late but I just found out about this band and I quite like what I'm hearing. Got a really nice blend of Punk and Metal.

Quick question, have they split? Doesn't appear to have much activity after A Call to Action

If I remember correctly, I'm pretty sure they spilt up in 2005. Though I could be wrong.

Contravene is horrible and anybody who likes them is a horrible person.

I listened to "In the name of Convenience"

Generic hippy bullshit put to generic hardcore and generic harmonised guitars. I liked some of the clean passages though, and thank God there wasn't a generic breakdown.

Militant vegetarians piss me off, but I have to admit that they are pretty bad-ass for basically saying "f*ck you" to evolution. Most punks only say "f*ck you" to the government.
