COMEBACK KID


"Broadcasting..." (Victory; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Returning with ferocious velocity, Canada's Comeback Kid have nabbed the hardcore flag for a run in the sun with their latest 11-track offering, "Broadcasting..." 

With help from legendary punk presence Bill Stevenson, tracks like "In/Tuition" and "The Blackstone" span the hardcore spectrum and come up with supertight riffs, gang vocal melees, and a bevy of solid breakdowns that are memorable enough to be rendered as instant classics. 

From the fierce Snapcase-esque feel of "The Blackstone" to the furious old school stomp of "Give'r (Reprise)," Comeback Kid continue to make honest hardcore that stings with melody and never fails to raise the spirits and rise to the occasion.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
