NINETY SIX GHOSTS: The War to End All Wars: 7”

The first song reminds me a bit of the pre-Strike Anywhere band Inquisition: heartfelt and aggressive but with a real melodic undercurrent to the overall sound. Anyone who misses that late-’90s sound or is a fan of the hardcore punk back catalog of Louisville-based label Initial Records will likely find a whole lot to like here. –Mike Frame (Snubbed, snubbedrecords.com)
