Album Reviews | Feb 28th, 2010

Record Label: Raise Your Fist Records
Genre: Melodic Punk
Band Link:
Buy on

Dynamic melodic punk polished with today’s emo-punk sound… and the result isn’t half bad. The vocals are clean, the musicianship is tight, and the tunes are nice and short (averaging 90 seconds!).

Even with their blistering energy and background group shouts, they’re a little too cleancut for me, but I can’t deny their appeal. I also appreciate that they don’t rely on ridiculous screeching for tough guy cred. Emo kids are certainly listening to much worse.

Bottom Line: Melodic punk that could crossover well to the mallpunk crowd.
