So gone is the second singer, but I don't think it really effected this band too much, because this is a quality hardcore release, a rarity nowadays in the era of bands trying to see who can wear more makeup while still trying to call themselves a hardcore band. Donnybrook keeps it 1995, the way some of us like our hardcore.

Two steps and breakdowns that have the whole crowd moving are covered by confident lyrics dealing with all sorts of problems... one being the internet (techno-logic-kill). The internet has not only allowed music to be much more easily heard, but also allows every idiot with a keyboard the ability to think they know everything about music and shoot off their mouths. People need to at least educate themselves on the scene before they make retarded statements about what hardcore is and isn't.

They cover "Victim" by District Nine on this release as well, which is a nice suprise for anyone that even remembers them.

Anyways, there need to be more hardcore releases sent to me, all I get is crappy emo and some good metal, but when I get a release like this it reknews my hope in the real scene: the local scenes that still exist and have people that have been supporting them for years. Donnybrook also needs to hit up PA again, so I can mosh some people in the face.

I saw these guys a few weeks ago with Terror...Ok, I saw these guys. Terror didn't even get to play because Donnybrook started a BRAWL that lasted forever and included dumb drunk guys getting hit in the fuckin faces with instrument cases. Was it cool? Hell yes it was. I was a little pissed when the 5-0 showed up and Terror and the Warriors weren't allowed to play. But I've seen both of those bands play before (together), so I wasn't too bummed. Donnybrook fuckin brings the HEAVY Drops, mothafuckas...This disc is SOLID, so buy it. Then go to a show and destroy someone in an insane Donnybrook pit. It will be worth your time and money.
