HHH - Demo CD
Picked this up after seeing the band at the hardcore all-dayer. Its a 5 track affair of old style hardcore that shows promise despite a production that is less than perfect in places with the vocals in particular suffering a bit.
Lyrically it deals in the old positive living, and I get the impression theres more than an element of straight edge in things. Which is fair enough if its not done in a preaching manner. And this isnt. In fact, it seems to see vocalist Dan questioning himself on Importance. Best of all though is final track Pitbull, which is a reaction to the senseless and mindless violent dancing that occurs so often at gigs, and it seems especially some of the scene hardcore gigs. It isnt big and it isnt clever, and it can alienate those that arent into the whole macho thing. So as far as Im concerned, full marks to the band for standing up and saying that. And theres a guitar solo at the end as well! If they can (or want) to sort out the production, then its a promising start.
