Stampede are a straight edge hardcore band that hail from somewhere in the Chicago area. I would like to give this album a fair review but I’m just not a fan of hardcore music and I’m not familiar with many hardcore bands nowadays.

“Stampede” just isn’t very listenable for me. I don’t mind the fast music, which can be quite good at times like on Let It Die, which sounded like a Slapshot song and on parts of The Stampede. What I don’t care for are the atypical hardcore scream vocals. Like most hardcore albums, it runs short and the songs sound similar to each other. For a few fleeting moments on a couple of songs, I was reminded of Blood For Blood, but that was over just as fast as the song had started.

I come away from this twenty-minute record with the feeling that I just listened to the same song eleven times. Kudos towards the music…boos for the vocals. Yelling instead of singing is an instant turn off.

Bottom Line:
Notable Tracks: Let It Die, The Stampede
Overall Rating:
