Life’s a Gamble…So is Death
Calling Ryker’s the German Agnostic Front is certainly more interesting than it sounds, and more accurately, would be wasting credit where it ain’t due. Spirited performances and excellent production or not, Life’s a Gamble…So is Death is state-of-the-art derivation, Ryker’s bear-wrestling, New York- styled (keenly note compound adjective) hardcore with such a passion that plundering AF’s back catalog almost seems like a worthy ideal. And to that we say: stay in Germany — we’ve got enough generic bands to contend with over here.
