Hardcore is not dead...repeat it with me.
I was actually putting off giving this album a listen because 1997 (when
hardcore/metal crossover music 'peaked' for me) almost seems like a lifetime ago
now. I tried to convince myself that this fast, angry, pounding hardcore stuff
of my teens was out of my system now that I'm staring at my late 30's in the
No such luck. The newest rock flung at a car from V.O.D. is a concrete block of
ear-shredding madness and should come with a warning about spontainious moshing
and speaker cone replacement. The anger and alienation have never left, still
pouring forth like a tsunami through the speakers, but with a more evolved sound
and direction. Tim's vocals have spread into new territory, like cracks spreading
through glass, the guitars follow to shatter completely.
Vision Of Disorder are back with a vengence, don't pass this one up.
