K-LINE: Lessons Learned But Ignored: CD-EP

Judging by the cover photo depicting the drummer wearing a DS-13 shirt, I thought this would be some blistering thrash band, but it turned out to be a totally decent melodic hardcore band. Not a great melodic hardcore band, but decent. These ears hear neato guitar lines and no horse gallop drums, but also epic song lengths (all five songs are over 2:30) and an entire band that really wants to put the pedal to the floor and explode all over the place but holds back for some reason. If these guys shaved off the fat and picked up the pace a ton, they would be really good, but as it stands they just aren’t doing anything for me. -Not Josh
