FOR PETE'S SAKE - In Faith and Loyalty

Location: Oslo, Norge
Release: React! Records, 2015

Straight edge and Norway, these 2 words combined triggers a feeling that will always have a special spot for those in the know, powerful music and message.

Many of those cherished Norwegian bands we grew old listening to like: Insurance Risk, Damage Control, Onward, SPORTSWEAR.. to name a few, came out of the hands and minds behind the folks in FOR PETE'S SAKE. In Faith and Loyalty represents more than a retro sound or a revival movement it's a statement of believes and ideas that defies time and aid us get through the daily grind in a world in decay.

Then let us live, you, with whom
I suffer, and together
strive towards better times
Cause we are the lonely ones,
and kindness, the pure,
should stay within our hearts

SO LET’S TRY—TO LIVE—IN PEACE
AND TOGETHER—STRIVE
TOWARDS BETTER TIMES
TOGETHER

In Faith And Loyalty

TIME TO HEAL - Taking Control

Location: Stockholm, Sverige
Release: DIY, 2015

More incoming hardcore from Stockholm, brand new youth crew group TIME 2 HEAL just put their debut EP online. Swedes takes recording pretty seriously and in this case is no different, guitar tones are great and music is well arranged overall but what stands here is Sofia's melodic vocals, tracks Coming Up Short and Hold On really stuck on me. I thought they were going for the positive side of things but turns out the lyrics deals about unburden and harsh truths in ya face!
