HOW WE ARE: To Teach a Hundred and One: LP

Easily one of the lamest band names ever. These guys remind me of bands like Undertow and Turning Point. Mid-tempo straight-edge style hardcore with a lot of break downs, heavy riffing, gang choruses, and the whole nine. The vocalist sounds like he’s being strangled at points. I imagine he’s wrecking his throat in the recording booth. They definitely bring nothing new to the table, and even though I’m not a huge fan of this, it’s obvious they believe in what they’re doing. If you like this type of music, then you may dig this. Comes with a huge booklet as well.
