This is a serious helping of thinking man’s hardcore. While a lot of bands are getting noisier as a way to increase the aggressiveness, Everything Falls Apart seem to be really zoning in on some great melodies and non-cock riffs, while still retaining the ‘80s HC influence. Consistently powerful, while definitely mixing it up and creating their sound. It’s great to hear a band develop without jumping off the deep end. Anyone who has a soft spot for pre-Hidden World Fucked Up should check this out.
