In Cold Blood
Hell on Earth
This stuff would make a clinical depression support group seem like the Happy Mondays. Not that they don’t have some important things to say. Hey, they cover every misery and plague, every disaster and social cesspool in the world today, plus a couple even I didn’t know about before. Vocalist Jason does an admirable job belting out the lyrics so that we can actually understand them, something most hardcore bands seem to be oblivious to. The music is gritty but not muddied, with some killer power chords thrown into the mix.
This CD is morbid and certainly not for the weak or squeamish, but it is for those who like hardcore and want to join in on some anguishing subject matter. Victory Records, P.O. Box 146546, Chicago, IL 60614; http://www.victoryrecords.com
