The Scum Also Rises

Revelation

Yes, we have a cover with men playing guitars and screaming. Yes, we have fast music with gruff vocals. Yes, we have '88-style Hardcore. The one twist on this old story is the presence of an Official Old School Hardcore Guy, Dan O'Mahony (ex- No For An Answer, 411 -- you remember them, right?). The only thing missing is those big old X's on the back of the hands. Isn't that how I remember it? Oh well. Lyrics consist of personal stuff and are yelled out. If you are into the '88 revival thing, go get this, because it's well done hardcore.
