Pride Kills Deep In the Heart

This is a hard-hitting release from a hardcore band hailing from deep in the heart of Texas. These Southerners know how to bring it and they bring it hard. Although it's mostly neither here nor there lyrically, there's a certain honesty and sincerity that shines through on these layered and pounding tracks. That's what sets them apart from the pack. You get the sense they're not playing in a band in order to sound like someone else's band. Heck, there's even a banjo solo on here to allow time for the dust to settle between the musical skirmishes. If you're fans of Terror and 100 Demons, this might appeal to you also. Give these good old boys some rotation and you'll find the Deep South has some decent hardcore on offer. (Thorp!)
