For a second I couldn’t believe it… but then it turned out the album title was “Leeway” and that “Make It Count” was in fact not the title of a new Leeway album I had somehow heard nothing about. Germans, ha! They used to simply invade our country, now they’re a little more subtle and start messing with our minds instead. So just for that I should subtract a couple of points from the final score! Anyway, Make It Count is a German band that likes its hardcore oldschool. Fast-paced, straight to the point, pissed off but always with a sense of melody. With plenty of cool singalong parts and breakdowns in all the right places, Make It Count definitely seem to know what they are doing. Throw in a great production and a cover of Battery’s “Whatever It Takes” and you’re looking at an album that all the oldschool fans out there should be able to appreciate!

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.
