As I’ve mentioned in past reviews, I’m a sucker for ‘90s-style “new school” hardcore. Luckily for me, the cyclical nature of genre resurgences currently finds the rather stale faux-Madball thing being replaced by a slew of bands channeling the early-Ferret/Victory/Trustkill catalogs. Outrage brings to mind a lot of When Forever Comes Crashing-era Converge and Cave In’s brief Until Your Heart Stops period, along with a hearty dose of Harvest or early Botch-esque writing. A totally accurate and fitting throwback that still manages to sound current. Good work fellas.
