KNIFE IN THE LEG: The Next 3 Stabs: CD

Jul 18, 2011

As the title implies, this is the second collection of previously released tracks from these guys, in this case stuff originally from a seven-inch EP and two split releases. The stuff here is still firmly rooted in hardcore, but there is definitely some more sophistication in evidence here in comparison to the stuff on its predecessor, The First 3 Stabs, and the result is songs with a longer shelf life. They pretty much keep the speed at mid-tempo throughout, with maybe a brief double-time bit thrown in here and there, but they do so without sacrificing any heft or intensity. Good stuff.
