Spirits is a relatively new straight edge hardcore band out of Boston featuring former members of Test Of Time, No Harm Done, Daytrader, Offsides and Beartrap. They’ve previously released a split 7” as well as a self-titled 7”, but “Discontent” marks the band’s first full-length.
Straight edge hardcore? Haven’t we heard that plenty of times before? Sure, and Spirits is not adding anything new to the genre, but that doesn’t stop them from delivering a solid album with “Discontent”. Other than a small intro here and there, they keep their foot on the gas with plenty of shredding. They spice things up with a nice break here and there and don’t fail to inject the songs with plenty of melody. Recommended for fans of Go It Alone and Count Me Out.
