Published Jan 01, 2006Formally known as American Nightmare and American Nothing, Give Up The Ghost is back with a new band name, but with the same melodic hardcore fans have grown to love and respect. The intense DIY-sounding "Blue M and the peacefully disturbing "Crush of the Yea both drive home, while "Young Hearts Be Free Tonight is sure to be a crowd pleaser when performed live. Tracks are generally short and passionate, with both heavy and punk-y breakdowns. Probably the best track on the disc, "We Killed It has great guitar parts, crowd shouts and sing/screams that just epitomise this bands intensity. The record isnt groundbreaking, but Give Up The Ghost are toying with a formula they seem to know works.
