STICK TOGETHER Surviving the Times Triple B Records -
Chaotic, vengeful, scathing hardcore. 6 vicious tracks are unleashed by STICK TOGETHER on their 2nd ep. Dude is rocking a CHAIN OF STRENGTH shirt, which is an obvious influence. STICK TOGETHER do not simply live in the realm of rehashed youth crew though. Their songs are comparable to the short bursts of rage contemporaries like ATTITUDE, INTERNAL AFFAIRS and WORD FOR WORD.
"View of One"
Fast, chaotic, double time pounding. Feedback and noise fuel an angry opener.
"Take the Pain"
this tune especially harder, heavier tracks that almost hit COKE BUST level darkness and speed; which is rather cool. Lyrics are unforgiving towards drug users: "No More second chances"
"Let Me Live"
is a bad ass song; straight forward 4/4 time until a rigorous breakdown that must stir the kids nuts. This is classic hardcore.
"Surviving the Times"
is a slow plodding romp for the dudes to show off there mosh moves. Seems like an extended intro joint; good feel a la RIGHTEOUS JAMS and THE RIVAL MOB.
a quick NYHC feel riff yields to a bullet of a beat. The second half transforms to swinging groove of anti-racist words gets the fists clenched and heads moving.
fuck subtlities this is hardcore. fast and to the point. 88 NYHC feel here with a sweet breakdown at the end.
STICK TOGETHER write fast 90 second songs (mostly) to incite the youth and get the dance floor moving. To the point lyrics of disgust and anger are shouted loudly. The music is propelled by charging drums with strong riffs. Pile-ons ensue.
FFO: ATTITUDE (buffalo), 2K Boston Bands: THE RIVAL MOB, RIGHTEOUS JAMS, MENTAL, etc; SIDE BY SIDE, BOLD, CHAIN OF STRENGTH.
