RF7: Hatred on the Rise: CD

Nov 24, 2009

Hardcore progenitors RF7 manage to do it all over again, thirty years after their first album, Acts of Defiance. Like clockwork, every few years a new incarnation of RF7 creeps into a studio. A ton of past and present members of RF7 contributed to this recording and it’s a damn fine example of old meeting new, meshing like fishnets on a fashionable rocker. Naysayers will yawn at these aged dudes trying to keep up with hardcore, but it’s a ton of fucking fun, especially the danceable title track. Count me in.
