This is an unrelenting hardcore album from start to finish by the Florida five-piece. You can expect gang vocals, double bass and lots of passion but it's worth noting that some of the guitar riffs are a lot more melodic and layered that you would usually find on a hardcore album, which adds a bit of variety to a genre that is notorious for its limited musical boundaries. You may be disappointed to know that the album time clocks in at just over 30 minutes from start to finish which has attracted some criticism in an age where bands want to offer more value for their fans' money. A special mention must go to the double bass peppered throughout the album but especially on "Shameless". "Hope For The Fallen", "Dear Galatia" and "Open Your Eyes" all are worth mentioning as my favourite tracks on an album that shows us the beginnings of a blossoming hardcore band. All in all this is a solid album from a solid band.
