First released in March 1997, here is California's Strongarm's second offering. Loud, aggressive hardcore. The slightly melodic nature brings it slightly into metalcore territory. If you like that sort of thing this is good, and the lyrics are quite "Christian" (if a little obscure). And now the downside. This is a reissue. Quite why Solid State have reissued it when it is still available in its original state is beyond me. And what is the point of advertising it by saying that it features members of Further Seems Forever when the bands are musically very different (hardcore and emo)? Having said that, if you like hardcore, you might want to check this out.
