RAW POWER

"The Hit List" (Sudden Death; 2004)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Spanning two decades, Raw Power's visceral approach to the hardcore genre hasn't waned a bit since its inception way back in 1981. In fact, as the Italian hardcore troupe's career reaches the 25-year mark, the band remains as relevant as ever, thanks to the undeterred spirit of founding members and brothers Mauro and Guiseppie Codeluppi. 

This latest collection spans the underground outfit's massive contribution to the hardcore movement, as songs from all of Raw Power's six releases are featured on "The Hit List," standing at a staggering 32 tracks chock full of old school hardcore aggression. 

If you are a fan of intense, straightforward hardcore a la Sick of It All, Agnostic Front, and DRI, then this all-encompassing Raw Power compilation is a must have item

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.
