Within Reach Fall From Grace

Within Reach (from Sweden, home of Refused and Yngwie J. Malmsteen) seem to have the upper hand on me with this one, because I can't get any sort of feel out of it. One second it's reminding me of old Entombed, then pop-punkers Strung Out (or any other pop-punk band, for that matter) and then some generic NY hardcore band. It does have lots of energy to it and they would probably be bouncin' around lots at a gig, yet at the same time, it's pretty faceless. Intelligent lyrics, which is great to see, with a good amount of exclamation points and question marks, but the music just flows straight through my head without leaving any sort of imprint.
