TRACES OF EMPIRE: The Body of the Condemned: Cassette

Sep 19, 2013

Growly, mid-tempo, metal-influenced old school hardcore reigns supreme on these five songs. While this is certainly not the most original sounding thing I’ve ever heard, it’s done well enough to get that circle pit going. The guitar solos are too “metal” for my tastes—I just can’t stomach the wanky guitar. There are some good moments here, but the guitar solos really kill any enthusiasm I might have for this.
