Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
Old school hardcore punk! I love it! And I’m glad thee are still new bands drawn to this classic style of music. New Heart’s debut ep reminds me of bands like Born Blind, Anchor, Minor Threat, xLooking Forwardx, etc. The band is all hardcore and all punk at the same time. Born in simplicity, raised in aggression.
Constant War kicks off the record as a pretty standard hardcore song. Which I say in love. The feedback leading into the drum countdown before the song explodes. It feels more like Bad Brains in it’s rawness and the punk roots you can feel pulsing through the song. The punk vibes running through Fence Walker make the song feel like another decade. No Remorse is a to the point punk rock song clocking in at 59 seconds! It will have you moshing and then dancing. It feels like the classic punk records of the mid-80’s.
The whole ep clocks in at just over 9 minutes long. 9 minutes! Time Is Running Out is but a snapshot of a new bands. It’s a glance at what’s to come.Old school hard punk fans will love this ep. It’s short and you’re hitting repeat long before you think you should. But you will hit repeat! 4 out of 5 Stars.
