"The Recovery" (Blood & Ink; 2006)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Nine tracks of well-measured positive hardcore is what this Oklahoma quintet deliver on "The Recovery."  Falling somewhere between Thursday, Boysetsfire, and Killswitch Engage, tracks like “Calling Out the Oppression” combine elements of chest beating screamo, new American metal chug, and bruising hardcore vocals. 

Juxtaposing these sounds with a keen ear for melody, tracks like “Confronting the Malice Tongue” and “Stand Up and Face Your Fears” allow both sing-alongs and fancy moshpit dance moves, making happy campers out of all the scenesters.

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.
