Now this is an interesting record.

With "Anitworld," Length of Time (featuring former Arkangel and DV8 member Kirby) make their pure hardcore a little more palatable by mixing in melodic choruses and smoother verses but while never sacrificing any of their hardcore power. The end result is still obviously a hardcore album, but a hardcore album with a difference: Those who hate hardcore (and there are many) won't instantly hate this record.

I hesitate to say that "Antiworld" expertly blends the raw rock force of hardcore with the more sophisticated style of nu-metal but that's almost the case here. The songs contained on "Antiworld" rage with that explosive hardcore force and yet don't alienate the listener by offering nothing more than that rage. Think of "Antiworld" as a more dimensional Length of Time.

If you're a hardcore fan who wants nothing but pure hardcore, stay away from "Antiworld." But if you're one of those that thinks, as I do, that hardcore can be as multi-faceted as as any other form of extreme music, check this one out.

Length of Time: Kirby - guitars; Zegers C - drums; Meseuw V - bass; Ives "Ross" - vocals.
