The Cost "Chimera"
From Oakland, The Cost were a powerful, original, interesting punk band. Their heavy, intricate, dark songs are completely engaging and fresh, but very much in keeping with what many post-"emo" punk bands are striving for - music that is melodious buy not poppy, lyrical but still raw. Their music was an original punk style that incorporated sounds from the mid-eighties DC scene (Gray Matter) the early nineties San Diego scene (Drive Like Jehu) and contemporary bands such as Alkaline Trio and Jets To Brazil. The band's only full length, originally released in 2002.
