Breakdown - _Battle Hymns for an Angry Planet_
(Thorp Records, 2000)
by: Alex Cantwell (8 out of 10)
This record consists of one "battle hymn" after another, and the songs seemingly get better as the record progresses. Although it seems that these guys have been a staple in the East Coast hardcore scene for many years, I had never heard of them before this came in the mail (freakin' poseur that I am!). I am happy to say that this is finely crafted hardcore with thought-provoking lyrics that is creative, non-redundant, and there's sing-a-long choruses to boot. Roger Miret (Agnostic Front) makes a great guest appearance on "Freedom Song". Makes me want to lace up the old boots again.
