BANE Don't Wait Up (CD)

by marcs77

“DON'T WAIT UP”, needless to say, this title wasn't ever really meant to be a solicit for the lazy reviewers to type out they thoughts on the last farewell full-length album from Worcester, Massachusetts based five-some BANE. What a fucked up thought! But, I admit, I kept this review lingering so long after the kind dudes at Equal Vision records have sent me the promo and it was about time to pay my humble dues to this great band.
Yes, you read it correctly, this is the final record through which, and together with a string of “good-bye” live dates, Bane wraps up this venture they kicked off around 1995 as a side project featuring Aaron Dalbec and members of hardcore monster act Converge.
“Don't Wait Up” won't definitely disappoint those into this band that has never been about putting out new records for the sake of giving the kids new stuff or as a pretest to heading out on tour -this new album is their fourth full-length and their discography counts other 4 extended plays as well.
“Don't Wait Up” lists 10 songs in the late 80's early 90's old-school hardcore vein. A blast of feverish energy and integrity made up by  tight solid guitars (with some angular riffing of Converge's legacy), slow build ups, heavy breakdowns and gang-vocals to singalong with, which proudly wear the colours of Bane -one of the main features being, inevitably, the raucous voice of Aaron Berard.

Finland's FORESEEN to release their debut full-length album

Our favourite thrash-hardcore crossoverist from Helsinki, Finland shared some news about the forthcoming debut full-length album.

Following several successful EPs, including 2013's well received Structural Oppression, Finland's FORESEEN HKI now break into the international metal scene with their debut LP, Helsinki Savagery. An explosive burst of rawcrossover, the band effortlessly fuse the 1980s iterations of US thrash and hardcore to create a merciless album of absolute jawbreakers. A distinctly Finnish rawness and hostility, that's been a hallmark of the countries incredible hardcore punk bands since the early '80s, pervades the LP.
