"Love and Betrayal" (Indecision; 2004)

Reviewed by Mike SOS


Straight edge hardcore troupe Still Crossed follow the creeds which will set them free on the band's 12-track endeavor, "Love And Betrayal." So well, in fact, that the metalcore introduction found on "Lines in the Sand" and the Sick of It All meets Shutdown breakdowns on tracks like "Faded" and "For Old Time's Sake" sound fresh and new when offered by this quintet. 

While the standard straight edge, preacher-on-the-pulpit delivery is very much apparent, it's almost warranted by the dynamic music underneath the band's message. 

Chugging and screaming like there's no tomorrow, Still Crossed's visceral hardcore will have you wind-millling for all the right reasons.

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.
