WHERE FEAR AND WEAPONS MEET
Reviewed by Snidermann
"Control" is high energy, balls to the walls, hardcore rock'n'roll. The intensity level throughout this CD is 10+ on a 10 scale with the high-intensity vocals to match. If you don't like your neighbors, slip this CD into your player, crank the volume to max and just wait for the cops to come. They'll be there eventually, assuming your neighbors don't have your good taste in music.
Admittedly, I usually don't care for the kind of one dimensional, painful, screaming vocals necessary in hardcore; but it really works for WFAWM. The music and the vocals work together as a single unit and separating them or toning one or the other down would kill the band's sound.
I truly like this band and their essence and vitality is apparent from the opening notes of the very first cut. Control is solid evidence that music is a very powerful force.
A solid recording from a truly talented band.
Where Fear and Weapons Meet: John Wylie - guitar; Jason Lederman - drums; Alex Roundhouse - vocals; Dan N-Fish - Bass; Chip "Alrighty Sirs" Walbert - guitar.

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.
