FINAL FIGHT: Half Head, Full Shred: CD

“Full Shred” was the last thing I was thinking when the first song started. Melodic guitars not unlike Leatherface, while great sounding, didn’t bring to mind a hardcore onslaught. Ten seconds or so later, that all changed. Final Fight exploded into the shrapnel of some kind of hardcore pipe bomb. Heavy, fast and melodic, these guys brought to mind Goat Boy or I Spy (I know, I know always with the Canadian band references). I really got into this record for a few songs before the screamy vocals became too much for me. Great in small doses, though.
