86 MENTALITY: Final Exit: CD

Jul 22, 2008

More on the oi side of things than hardcore these days, but it sounds good either way. I like the bellowing vocal style, which gives this that edge needed to be convincing. The songs cruise at a mid-tempo pace and the guitar has that blazing sound that has a slow-burning effect. Songs like “Degenerate” and “Out Of Control” are the definite standouts, requiring repeated listens before moving on to the next track. There’s also a live seven-song set tacked on at the end of this. –M.Avrg
