FROM THE GROUND UP: Words Can’t Explain: CD

It’s sincere, positive hardcore stuff—sounds a lot like Reserve 34’s Rain City Games or a less metallic Label The Traitor. Lots of thumpa-thumpa-thumpa drums, walking, melodic guitar lines and hoarse, shouted vocals about, like, personal relationships. Like I said, I’ve no doubt they absolutely mean what they’re crowing about, and they’re proficient at what they’re doing, but it’s certainly not something that slaps me over the head, throws me in the trunk and takes me somewhere, know what I mean?
