PROMISES: Hopeless Sons: CD

Nov 30, 2010

Decent “old-school” hardcore with that kinda updated West Coast sound. Y’know, that sorta serious Go It Alone/Another Breath-type aesthetic—black and white cityscape artwork, atypically (for the genre) personal lyrics. This stuff doesn’t really hold my attention for very long anymore, but I imagine there are a ton of kids who are down with the Panic/Rivalry/etc. scene who would be wild about these dudes. Well-executed, but just not a whole lot brought to the table that’s gonna have me going back for more.
