"Stand & Fight" (Bridge Nine; 2003)

Reviewed by Snidermann

On their self-title release, Stand & Fight belts out the tunes at a blistering and furious pace. Hardcore punk music should always be encouraged for its pure ass-kicking power and simple aggressive fun. Stand & Fight delivers just that.

Because this CD is half new stuff and half re-released demo, the first six songs on this CD (the new stuff) rock like the devil, but the last six just don't cut it. Judging from the weaker, earlier tracks, Stand & Fight has come a long way since the beginning. I can't wait to see what they deliver in the future.

I really liked this band and think they have a great future in the music biz. "Stand and Fight" would have easily received a higher rating if there had been more of the stronger new songs. The demos I could do without.

Stand & Fight: Wrench - vocals; Greg Bacon - bass; Kevin Jaros - guitar; Kevin Chaffey - drums.

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.
