Misconduct ...United as One

Having endured what has to amount to about 37 line-up configurations over the past nine years, it's a wonder this band was able to persevere long enough to record a third album. And it's a pretty ballsy move (and I suspect intentionally ironic) to call it ...United as One when the band's history is demonstrative of anything but. However, after nearly four years, the hardcore Swedes are back and rocking harder than ever. United is a classic positive force hardcore album in the finest tradition of Youth of Today and 7 Seconds. The music is fast — blazingly fast — and the lyrics preach exactly what the title suggests: unity. (Union)
