This is a 40 minute blast of Hardcore fury, laced with a Metallic sheen!
Songs that are nothing much over 2 or 3 mins, in your face, raw guitar, thumping drums (the drummer is very proficient technically for the H/C genre) fat bass work and throaty vocals. And you can forget anything like samples or scratching/hip hop ala Biohazard (who are often likened to Hatebreed).
Production is good but perhaps is more raw than 2003's Rise Of Brutality which has a stronger Death Metal influence in it's guitar tone, bass drumming and vocals. Jasta is angry & hoarse but his vocals sound a little less 'Death' than the growls on ROB. More shouting than the low grunting of that later album.
As usual, life in the street, urban issues/personal struggle style lyrics pervade and this is best described as angry, working class music (which is what Hardcore basically is).
