This Time The Keys Are Broken - "What About Tomorrow" EP Review

Yeah! Here at TYS we are down with the Greek hardcore bands who dare to follow a fresher approach of the music we love. TTTKAB is one of those bands, a bunch of young hardcore fellas whose influence by newer forms of hardcore definitely shows in their sound. What is important, however, is that they still keep the energy levels running high, which is the mostly essential aspect in hardcore music. So let's see what's up with this awesomely named 'new wave' hardcore outlet and the fuss they've created since their brief existence!

What About Tomorrow is the band's first recording, a 4-song EP which blasts through some very good melodic, melancholic modern hardcore. Fans of Modern Life is War, Comeback Kid, Give Up the Ghost etc take note! This band is a serious force to be reckoned with! The production sound is awesome and can easily be compared to US and whatever bands. And to be sure, this band is not some soft-ass hardcore like the type that is circulating a lot these days; their solid breakdowns are mean as hell and heavy as fuck, while the majority of the vocals are pretty harsh (not in the metal but more in the screamo style)! So forget what you might be thinking about pop parts, feelgood college style pop punk etc. This is hardcore, even if it is new age!

I could do with a bit more memorable and catchy tunes in this EP, but I am confident that this is something that will spring up in their next release for sure! After all, this band has members who might be young of age but they have all played (or play) in other notable bands, so they have a lot of potential to make a good name for themselves. At the end of the day, they pioneer a form of hardcore that's pretty much unheard of here in Greece, so thumbs up to them. We'll be here waiting for their next move!
