REBEL SPIES: Rise!: CD

Detroit area hardcore punk band comprised of assorted Suicide Machines, Telegraph, Hellmouth, HiFi Handgrenades, and fordirelifesake members. Music’s clean sounding melodic hardcore, well executed but missing a little in the way of conviction. Not bad, but I was kinda waiting for something here to knock my socks off and it never quite materialized. –Jimmy Alvarado (Underground Communique, undercomm.org)
