ONLY CRIME: Virulence: CD

Mar 23, 2007

This is the second release from this super group comprised of members of Good Riddance, Descendents, Bane, Converge, and others. Much improved from the first, but carries on the sound of a heavier Good Riddance, due to Russ Rankin on vocals. It’s a combination of melody with the punch of hardcore, meeting rock power. The guitar work is more adventurous with accents and more dissonant notes to add to the layers of the songs. The production is strong, making the songs come across solid and easy to listen to. I like it when you can hear every instrument in the mix. Consistent from start to finish. Listened to this more than a few times and I can say personally that it was an enjoyable listening experience.
