Life Long Tragedy - Runaways
Tuesday, February 12, 2008 - 13:00
Shit, Life Long Tragedy released an album that definitely wears you down in just a little over 35 minutes. With grime-crusted guitars and a vocalist who seems to wallow in despair, they have no problem dragging you down into their world. And thanks to the mostly midtempo drums that work like a sort of stranglehold you are unable to crawl back towards the light.
And wanna know the funny thing? You can't wait to hit play again once it's done. Sludgy hardcore that reminds me of Modern Life Is War... who is able to resist it? It's too late for me... "Runaways" already got under my skin and refuses to leave.
