TIME HAS COME / TRAINWRECK / OUT COLD / CHANGE TODAY / QUEEN CITY CREW: The End Begins Now: CD

It was an unseasonably warm Saturday in November and I was rocking out to Leatherface’s Mush album (one of my favorites) in my bedroom, but I thought I should get cracking on some album reviews. So I popped in this five-way split CD of hardcore bands from Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, and the United States—including one band I like, Trainwreck—only to realize it was a different band with the same name. What I found were hardcore bands with metal breakdowns, or maybe it was metal bands with hardcore breakdowns. Either way, I quickly went back to Leatherface.
