Stillsuit - _At The Speed Of Light_
(TVT Records, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
For those that really dig the intensity of such hard-edged acts as Quicksand, Helmet or Only Living Witness I will recommend Stillsuit. _At The Speed Of Light_ fulfills all the requirements of a melodic hardcore band that has the knack for writing not only strong numbers but memorable ones too. The album radiates a very raw feel to it as numbers like "Bicycle For Two" or "Will To Die" seem to really bring out an realistic feel of dominance and strength within the material. It just hits ya real hard in the gut. While many might place Stillsuit in the same category/sound of NYC greats Quicksand, the band does manage to add their own identity to the music too. Another thing that I enjoyed about Stillsuit's debut album is the harshly delivered vocals of singer Julian, a characteristic that really seams to help guide the direction of where the band is taking it's music. Loud n' heavy music that'll surely not be overlooked.
