With Complete Failure I was thrown a bit off. I anticipated a hardcore band with generic lyrics and a generic sound. What I found was a hardcore band that was heavy as fuck and fast. Despite this small surprise I still assumed it would sound like every other band out there in this genre.
What started out as a dreaded listen turned into a quite enjoyable romp through this album. It varies between hardcore and a touch of grind. Blast beats and heavy music made this record stand out for me. There is even a song that reminds me of Rollins Band that was strategically placed to break up any monotony that may have arose. The vocals were amazing and are exactly what I look for in my heavy hardcore.
I can see this band going places. Their sound is unique while paying homage to their influences. I was thoroughly impressed and will be tossing this album on for quite some time. this is definitely the best album I have heard so far this year. Go check it out and bask in their righteous jams.
