So there’s this UK band called Hacktivist. TheMadIsraeli wrote a post about them in January that garnered 83 comments, and I didn’t even write half of them like I usually do.

I’m all about pandering to the interests of NCS readers. So, I’m writing this post despite the fact that all I have is a riff test that Hacktivist posted today, a riff test that lasts only 1 minute and 17 seconds — and that’s including a synth intro and outro (yes, apparently even riff tests require intro’s and outro’s). And no rap.
