Agnostic Front - _Another Voice_
(Nuclear Blast, 2004)
by: Jackie Smit (9 out of 10)
Damned if somebody didn't light a fire under these guys. Those expecting another collection of anthemic sing-alongs in the vein of recent 'Gnostic efforts like _Dead Yuppies_ and _Riot, Riot Upstart_ may as well prepare themselves for a rude awakening beforehand, as _Another Voice_ pulls no punches, following the same brutal road as the often-imitated, never-bettered _One Voice_. Given the lethal handle of good, old fashioned hardcore and boorish, in-your-face metal that is stuck so effectively to tracks like "Pure", "Peace", and the incendiary "Casualty of the Times", the recruitment of Hatebreed's Jamie Jasta to oversee production of the album has to be seen as a masterstroke, but in truth the entire band is on form for the duration. Roger Miret spits out acid-laced diatribes like "Fuck you and everything you ever said about me / I despise you and I'll never show you mercy", like he's about to be let loose on a murderous rampage, while Vinnie Stigma and particularly new drummer Steve Gallo keep it ultra-tight on the instrumental side of things. Let's just hope that it doesn't take the band twelve more years to create another oh-so-perfectly executed outburst of aggression.
