Bloodlined Calligraphy from Detroit are wonderfully, beautifully hardcore. Everything about this five tracker, (their second release) is fantastic, from the CD's artwork and layout, to the song titles such as "Trying To Collect Child Support From Ghostdad". 'The Beginning Of The End' is the first material featuring new guitarist Ryan Hampton and vocalist Ally French, but the band sound in solid shape. The music itself rolls along at a great pace, kept in check by some tight, tight drumming. Occasionally the guitars go slightly 80's rock with their double recorded lead riffs and the guys sound like a terrified Pax 217 when allowed to sing next to their Female LV, but please be upstanding for Ypsilant's finest.
