"Dead End" (Facedown; 2003)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

"Dead End" begins with a machine gun-soaked sample from a film, and the onslaught continues, as Seventh Star's brand of hardcore has arrived like a smack to the teeth. 

This Florida quintet have got a lot of metal riffs purging out of those guitars, a la Hatebreed and the ilk, yet there's a strong, tough  guy, hardcore vibe just like old school Madball here as well. It's that one-two combo that carries the 11-track album and makes Seventh Star a nice up and coming act to coincide with the likes of Sworn Enemy, Poison the Well, and Full Blown Chaos.

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.
