WHERE EAGLES DARE: To Come from Nowhere: CD

Apr 13, 2008

I remember reviewing their CD a year ago. I pulled it out to hear what they sounded like. They had a straight-forward hardcore/straight edge sound that was energetic and fierce. I pop this in the player and hear a lot of change and progression. The hardcore/straight edge is still here, but they must have been playing a lot of Mars Volta or At the Drive In while in their touring van. The breakdowns that were mosh in the past became more emotive. Also, due to better musicianship, the music has more metal elements. So the emo-screamo is more prevalent, added with the youth crew backgrounds. Still burly and their shows are probably a bad place to be if you suffer from some body ailments.
