LOVEHOPEANDFEAR: Roseep: CD

Admitting once again that I don’t know anything about hardcore, but I do know what I like. When asked if I know what I’m looking for all I can say is, “I’ll know it when I see it” and this is a little too clean for as scary as it’s supposed to sound. The vocals are over the top, in the “he needs a lozenge” hardcore way, but the music is just a bit too standard metal to make it all gel for me.
