I figure I’d review something that I haven’t reviewed in awhile..hardcore punk. It seems like that genre is slowly fading away and bands need to bring it back, even if there are a few crappy ones out there. Triple Threat have that classic hardcore punk/thrash sound of the 80s. Fast, aggressive and short songs that will make you want to smash a chair over someone’s head. Or at least that’s how I feel when I listen to this type of music. I grew up with this sort of style so it’s a bit reminiscent; the quality sort of has that raw punk sound from the 80’s as well. Plus these guys are straight edge and that’s always fun to listen to since I’m SxE myself. Yes, there are still people dedicated to the X.

The vocals of Triple Threat take awhile to get use to, but in the end I don’t really have a problem with it. It’s all about getting the message across (or screaming the message), no matter how screechy or off you may be. Look at CIV when he was in the Gorilla Biscuits, his screeches could break a window sometimes but people still loved it. But anyway, the songs are short enough that it doesn’t make me want to skip to the next track. The longest track is 2 minute and 14 seconds. That’s a person with ADD’s dream! But even though I like the style of music, I think this album could have been a lot better. The songs sound the best when they just crank them out instead of repeating these loud & annoying choruses. Like for the song “Break It,” it just gets to be too much for me. But if you dig old school hardcore punk & thrash, you might dig this band.

Bottom Line: For fans of Gorilla Biscuits, Agnostic Front, The Pist and Chain of Strength
Notable Tracks: Something More, In Your Hands
