26 BEERS: Long Walk, Short Pier: CDEP

Nov 07, 2008

Newer band from the Boston area that pulls its sound from a few different genres. Punk, thrash, metal, crossover, and hardcore can be heard in their take of anger music. They may start out playing a chunking, heavy riff at one moment and then change it up with blasting beats. A great feeling of manic rage but with energy that is consistent and fierce. Music that you want to play in your car with the windows down to offend nearby listeners while you are screaming at the top of your lungs. A reference that comes to mind is that this band reminds me a lot of Fall Silent. Especially the vocals with its screamed yet controlled output. With a band name like 26 Beers, I really thought I wasn’t going to like this. Musically, they won me over.
