ALL OR NOTHING H.C.: What Doesn’t Kill You...: CD

Feb 21, 2008

I have read Renae Bryant’s columns in MRR for a number of years and she has mentioned her band many of times. I never actively went out to purchase her band’s music and never went to check out her shows. My loss. If this release is any indication, I have been missing out on a lot. The songs are mid-tempo to fast. It’s straight-up punk rock with raw production that keeps things aggressive. Her vocals are intense with anger and you truly believe her words because of how she delivers. I have read that she has had a lot of line-up changes throughout their history, but that does not hurt the music here. She seems to have built a sold backing here since there seems to be no weak link. The songs are strong and keep me attentive. Now I need to get off my ass and go see them live.
