Vultures on the cover. I like that. And just like vultures feed off the flesh of the dead, I suspect the dudes that make up This Is Hell feed of all the crap that goes on in the world. They suck it right up and then channel all their aggression and frustration into hardcore splinter bombs that destroy everything in sight.

Right from the start, This Is Hell bursts out of the gates with “Reckless” and they keep up the unrelenting pace all the way to “Cement Shoes”, the bonus track that ends this band’s second album.

It ain’t fancy or pretty but then again the most effective and practical machines hardly ever are. These guys know how to properly apply their chugga chugga parts and the occasional breakdowns along with Travis Reilly’s manic screams to create an awesome album that will send many a hardcore band back to the drawing board.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
