As One No Less An Authority

Angsty Toronto teens play old style hardcore on this decent debut. There's four songs on this, one of which is a cover of Warzone's "United Worldwide." The others feature tough guy lyrics, like on "It's Time," ("Think you'll fuck with me? I'll fuck with you. Think I'm locked down? It's coming back for you.") Juxtaposed with this are photos of the band members, one of whom is a cherubic lad who looks like a more like a wallflower at a grade eight dance. Despite all this, their sound still packs a pretty good wallop. (Independent)
