What sets Antagonize apart from their previous record is the incorporation of even more sonic influences. Right along side of their draw from indie rock/punk is their obvious love of metal. Some of these songs border on the realm of black metal with their frenzied beats and frantic guitar playing. That is not to say that it is in stark contrast to the rest of the material because as mentioned before... these guys are masters of composition. It all fits together wonderfully and embodies the diversity of this genre... which is what made me love it in the first place.
Boatrocker have yet again released an incredible record. My only hope is that it doesn't go unnoticed and sees a proper release on vinyl some day (not only for the incredible music... but the stunning artwork). After putting out one of the best debuts of any band of their ilk (2011's Delicious Jams), I am completely at a loss as to why they haven't been scooped up by a label and playing to packed rooms every night. I sincerely hope that Antagonize changes all of that because it is that good.

I'd totally love to do a vinyl release -- if people like the album enough to spend money on it we'd definitely put any money toward a physical record. Broke as fuck, though.
