FATAL BLOW - 'Rise From Disgrace' album review (2011)

Brazil: a place of mesmerizing landscapes, diverse social conditions and crushing motherfucking hardcore! Fatal Blow are here to stamp their name on the genre with their new album entitled Rise from Disgrace. We are talking about some real intense, brutal old-school hardcore that brings the best of the 90s sound (Breakdown, Hoods) in collision with a full-fat, hard as nails modern production. It's a win-win situation!

Rise from Disgrace contains 10 fast & heavy hardcore blasts including an awesome cover of Agnostic Front's 'Your Mistake' (from 1984's classic Victim in Pain album). This is just non-stop, full blown hardcore action with pissed off vocals and crazy, over the top, seriously bad ass drumming. The guitar and bass deliver the frantic NY flavored riffs one after the other, leaving the listener with very little space for breathing and relaxing (just space for moshing and two stepping). I am glad to say that there is no punk, no Oi!, no street punk, no 'progression' etc on this album, but only 100% ferocious hardcore... and that's the way we like it when it comes to this style of music.

So if you like simple, honest, brutal hardcore that overflows with anger and attitude, this album's for you. You will not be disappointed by the energy these guys bring when you blast Rise from Disgrace at full volume. This is bulldog style music!
