THIS RUNS ON BLOOD: The Ocean in Black and White: LP

Jul 13, 2010

I really like the vocals on this album. It’s a perfect mix between the vocals of bands like City Of Caterpillar and Blood Brothers. This is intense and experimental hardcore which can go from full blast to a crawl without losing an ounce of intensity. This is some of the most intense stuff I’ve heard in a while, with some awesome blast beats. My only complaint would be the sound clips which start out cool but eventually get too prevalent and time consuming; also, loop tracks with annoying sounds are not cool. That being said, it’s always great to see this side of hardcore, as opposed to so much stereotypical chugga chugga cheesy jock crap. This rules! Check it out and pick it up.
