I remember attending a local Spleen Flipper gig for the release of their latest work “The Will To Kill” and opening up that night was Lodi's quintet A Theory Of Justice. It was a while I didn't catch up with ATOJ and when they started playing I've immediately got the feel the band was heading toward changes in terms of sound, being what I was hearing something more like darker and tense than the new school hardcore meets metalcore stuff included in their very first outing titled “Athena”, and I knew them for.
A few years went by from that show and last December 2014 the guy released a new self-titled EP that only confirmed the sounds they had been shooting for were very different from Athena's.
Their new stuff is reminiscent to me of Trustkill's metalcore as well as the darker chaotic angular math-post-hardcore-metal of bands on Deathwish Inc. records.
I emailed the band a few questions to learn first hand as much as possible about this change in sound, ATOJ (the EP) and get information about The Creature Fest and Clam association, +AMICI -STORIE and more...

Fat Wreck Chords signs again FACE TO FACE, new album out in 2016

Whooaa, that's some great news for all fans of seminal punk band FACE TO FACE...

Looks like the FAT family is expanding! Perhaps you picked up the hint at our FAT Anniversary show in LA when face to face graced the stage to perform a few numbers? If you were just reveling in nostalgia as you sang along to "Disconnected" off their classic album, "Don't Turn Away", we are here to connect the dots. As of today, we can officially reveal that Fat Wreck Chords and Face To Face have reunited!
And it gets better: this week, the band heads to Colorado and the legendary Blasting Room. There, they'll be holed up for about a month, combining forces with the studio’s powerhouse producers Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore to record their ninth full-length!
Due out in 2016, the new album will showcase all the infectious melodies and driving guitars you’d expect on a Face To Face punk record, amplified by the Fort Collins production machine.

ROUND7 No Excuse (CD)

by marcs77

Beginning of June I received the latest stuff from Indelirium records and again the Molina Aterno, L'Aquila, Italy based DIY label confirms itself to keep its standards high thanks to a ever growing roster of very good and passionate bands and an enviable bunch of cool releases; these include a 10-track split featuring My Distance and The Memory, two Italian modern hardcore bands, whose previous outings have been reviewed here on gotanerve-zine -since, this time around, I won't be reviewing “Bridges” I just warmly suggest fans of modern hardcore that mixes melody, energy, chuggy riffs and heavy breakdowns to check this record out (The Memory has always a Comeback Kid feel to them while My Distance dirtied their sound with some heavy grooves and rockish influences).
Indeed, in this review run, I'm gonna feature two other interesting releases from Indelirium; one being ROUND7's debut full-length “No Excuse” and the second YORKSHIRE RATS' new album “Sea Of Souls” -the Brits return after a 9 years hiatus.
Let's get down first with Vicenza's Round 7, who follow-up their “United Kids” EP, out in November 2013, with this lengthy 12-song record entitled “No Excuse”.
