Sick Of It All

Billy Bio – Feed The Fire (AFM Records)

Believe it or not, while I may have heard of Biohazard for nearly 30 years, I have never actually listened to a single album. Sure, I’ve heard a good many songs on compilations, samplers and watched music videos, so I… Continue Reading →

Sick Of It All – Wake the Sleeping Dragon! (Century Media)

Hardcore isn’t exclusively a New York phenomenon, but it is appropriate to the gritty city. Sick Of It All have been doing it loud and proud for 32 years, and are now on their twelfth album. If I were to… Continue Reading →

Madball – For The Cause (Nuclear Blast)

Back in the late eighties when Agnostic Front’s Roger Miret first let his 12 year old brother Freddy Cricien jump on stage and take the mic no one could have thought that “Madball” Freddy and his pals would still be… Continue Reading →

Iron Reagan / Gatecreeper – Split (Relapse Records)

I think I must have been quick off the blocks to get a hold of this from Thee Ed, as I know that both Iron Reagan and Gatecreeper are some of the most hotly regarded bands of the last couple… Continue Reading →

Bloodclot – Up In Arms (Metal Blade)

Super-group. An epithet banded about since the seventies and usually used for a bunch of rich hippies who got stoned and decided to make some extra cash by rehashing riffs from their parent bands. Hardcore. A genre that seems to… Continue Reading →

Walls Of Jericho – No One Can Save You From Yourself (Napalm)

If you bought into The American Dream it’s been a while since its follow up but finally after 8 years Walls Of Jericho return with album number five, No One Can Save You From Yourself. In the hiatus, life and… Continue Reading →

World Be Free – The Anti-Circle (Revelation Records)

My whole world has been torn apart. Scott Vogel was always the angriest man in hardcore, every subsequent Terror record reinforcing his message of disillusionment, dissatisfaction and general vitriol. It was a done deal and we all knew what to… Continue Reading →

Terror – The 25th Hour (Century Media)

Over the past 13 years Terror have carved themselves a place as hardcore heavyweights. The two original members; vocalist Scott Vogel and drummer Nick Jett, have persevered through multiple line-ups, labels, six albums, four EP’s and an almost constant touring… Continue Reading →

Survival – Shayda 1 (S/R)

Since the early 1990’s, the biggest challenge facing a new hardcore band is how to stand apart from every other hardcore band, how to be unique while retaining support of the scene. Bands remain true to the written formula, deviate… Continue Reading →

The Fiend – Greed• Power • Religion • War (Candlelight)

This Newcastle band has been around for 30 years it seems but releases are scarce to say the least as this is only the second full length out and was released during 2014 but has been picked up Candlelight to… Continue Reading →

Pro-Pain – Voice Of Rebellion (SPV)

Not sure what’s going on but I normally have a big review pile of stuff that I want to cover but of late absolutely nothing really has made me want to grab it and everything’s been a bit meh. Perhaps… Continue Reading →

Earth Crisis – Salvation Of Innocents (Candlelight)

Part of the process of this review was to refresh myself on where Earth Crisis came from to get to where they are.  I duly bludgeoned myself my listening to their 2011 oeuvre “Neutralize the Threat”. Puffing my cheeks out… Continue Reading →
