about

This melodic punk/hardcore band from Berlin has grown on me with each subsequent listen and my opinion has gone from thinking they were just OK to flipping it over and over and reading along with the lyrics and really digging it. The sound comes off as a blend of mid-tempo hardcore like later period ARTICLES OF FAITH and modern straight edge. But the song structure also gives a nod towards rock and roll à la SOCIAL DISTORTION and the singer has a nice and raspy delivery that ties it all together. The lyrics fall mostly along the personal, but they're prfound and heartfelt. All four tracks are crafted with killer guitar work and tempo-changes and the EP comes off more as a mini-album as a result. A promising debut. (BG) - MAXIMUM ROCK'N'ROLL
