Where Fear and Weapons Meet

Unstoppable

Triple Crown

Where Fear and Weapons Meet• nowhere in particular, really, or at least anywhere compelling, given the band’s kinda-cool moniker. A seven-song/15-minute MCD, Unstoppable is pretty much a quick and forgettable blast of yer run-of-the-swill kinda-melodic/mostly-hoarse hardcore, the quintet not deciding whether to be a Lifetime tribute band, a grown-up youth crew, or a feeble stab at metalcore conventions. Some may call such incongruities “ingenuity” or even (cough) “ambition,” but I’d more accurately call it “lack of focus.” Unstoppable? Hardly. Go•away!
