5.0 out of 5 stars Instead of reading this review, you could be buying this CD., 24 April 2007
This is the album you want to mug a granny for.

If you've ever mentioned that you like Hardcore, even in a passing comment to look cool over your Myspace page, then buy this CD.

If you think bands like Bring Me The Horizon are the "Saviour of Hardcore music" then buy this CD.

In fact, if you're even looking at this page then you need to buy this album. Pay tribute to one of the BEST hardcore bands of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 12 Sept. 2005
It's the best book I've read in years.
If only the kids around would study one and stop with this outbreak of slang and "text talk". The world would be a much happier place.
Best book ever released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Radioactivist, 11 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Radioactivist (Audio CD)
Modern day punk is dominated by bands like The Offspring, Blink 182, Rancid, Good Charlote etc. etc. The new Mainstream industrial voyage seems to be taking over the once underground style and manufacturing it to sound commercially pleasing, oh i mean sell-out material. One by one great bands are being bought and "modified" to sell more.
With this happening it's hard for some bands to bring out an album and do well when the industry is mostly dominated by a line up of few bands. We've seen the underground produce many great bands, who still exist today and still rule. Red Tape are a new band that fit into neither of these categories. They're by no means underground, and they're not mainstream, they're a new blend of punk and rock which creates a fairly unique sound. Some of tracks sound alike but it's not worthy of being downgraded a star rating. Listening to tracks like "Damage Control", "Stalingrad", "Divebomb" and the rest of the album will keep you listening to it time and time again.
I purchased this album the day of release after hearing some tracks on a promotional CD and i'm still loving it. It's kept me entertained and is not an album i can see myself getting bored with.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Pure KiLlER, 25 Nov. 2003
Whereas not as fast or hard as the previous Spineshank albums, SDP excels in targeting more skilled music. Santos' harmonic vocals mixed with slaming riffs and rapidly moving emotional elements make this album a killer. Violent Moodswings starts off the album with a strong hit of talent, and moving through Smothered, Beginning Of The End, and Falls Apart you are not disappointed in the slightest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind Blowing, 5 Nov. 2003
This review is from: The Mourning After (Audio CD)
I was first introduced to a few 40 Below Summer songs by a friend after not hearing any of their material. And what i heard impressed me no end. It's a great blend of riffs and beats topped with amazing vocals that make the record overall excellent.
I was a bit cautious when i first heard about the band, but my fears were blown away when i heard the tracks.
I reccommend this album to anyone that hasn't heard any of their music, you may think it's a gamble but i'm 100% sure you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Above The Rest By Far, 29 Oct. 2003
On their debut, Machine Head proved to us that they are here to rule, and did so, almost a decade later they release what seems to be further evidence that you cannot stop the 'Head. The opening blast of "Imperium" keeps you hooked on the rest of the album and if you're like me, you will not be able to put it down. A completely exhillerating album that cannot be fought, it is a reminder that Machine Head are here to stay...

5.0 out of 5 stars Outrageously Brilliant, 29 Oct. 2003
This review is from: DevilDriver (Audio CD)
I first came across DevilDriver when i bought Coal Chambers latest album, it was advertising Dez Fafaras new band, so i gave them a look. There was an option on the web site to listen to the album, so i did and i cannot get enough of it. The angry riffs of "I Could Care Less" and "Die (And Die Now)" make you want to do everything with this album blasting. Definately a top album to abuse your ear drums with.
Devildriver are a faster, louder and more electrifying metal band then Coal Chamber, competing with the big runners this could be one of the best metal albums of the year.

This review is from: To My Surprise (Audio CD)
When i first heard of TMS i thought "Nothing special, just another side project." But then i took the effort to listen to the album and it completely blew me away. You don't have to know or like Slipknot to be able to enjoy this album as its nothing like them. I recommend this album to anyone that likes rock, as from the begining of the album, to the end, it's a completely new style that is great to hear.
