What do you get when you cross various members of xdisciplex [sic], Shockwave and NIV? Dodgin' Bullets. Despite the cheesy introduction to this mini album, 'Soundtrack...' is overall a fairly good example of modern hard core. With a distinctive indie vibe running throughout, Dodgin' Bullets play well together, delivering a fine - allbeit short -set of skilfully played arrangements any hard-core fan would appreciate. From thrash to metal-core, Dodgin' Bullets' sound is fairly varied throughout, helping to gain and maintain listeners' attention long enough to appreciate 'Soundtrack...'. Stand out cuts have to be the punk-esque "Earn Your Respect", complete with a catchy gang-vocal chorus; and the blistering metal-core sonics of "Devil's Jaw", built around Kyle Fisher's bass line. Though a fairly solid release, the mix is a little uneven in places, leaving 'Soundtrack...' sounding somewhat muddy at times, impairing the material's impact on the listener. A good, but not particularly memorable affair.
