It makes me happy that some people out there still play “hardcore” that somewhat resembles what it originally sounded like. Sure, Stop Breathing is really tight musically, and the production is pretty slick, but these songs are rippers and none of it sounds like bullshit basketball jersey-wearing metal-rap. Does it bring anything new to the table? Probably not, but it’s a fun listen and that is what it’s all about.
