ON THE CINDER: The Fight against Ourselves: LP

Technical and tight, On The Cinder offer up melodic hardcore with a splattering of pop punk tendencies. There are plenty of gang vocals, as well as heavy double bass pedal beats. At times, it’s a bit indulgent. These guys don’t push an overtly metal sound; in fact there’s a tinge of post-punk guitar, which separates them from the fray. The record is full of dystopian lyrics and has a rad little zine insert with vibrant artwork. –Camylle Reynolds (Between The Days)
