Hailing from the great city of Boston is hardcore act The Noble. Abolitionism is the title of their upcoming EP in which you will find five purely aggressive and in your face tracks that you have no choice but to listen to. The Noble puts a bit of a spin on the hardcore sound by offering up positive tunes for you to head bang and bash your brain against your skull to. Each track offers up positive messages about equality, standing up for what is right and respect among others. With their aggressive sound, The Noble fleshes out messages of positivity and hope which is a nice and fresh take on an ultimately destructive and bone shattering sound.

As positive as the messages are throughout Abolitionism, The Noble certainly still takes a no holds barred approach to their sound as they blast off right away with Somethin Ta Say. This track is a trudging and heavy handed offering that grips you by the jaw right off the bat only to shovel copious amounts of hammering drums, manic screamed vocals and massively bone rattling riffs upon you. From this opener onward the intensity doesn’t let up what so ever as The Noble takes you on a savage sonic ride that very quickly sears each track in to your head.

Once one track fades out the next quickly appears confronting you with a massively heavy and in your face sound that is hard to forget. The Noble doesn’t give you rest in between tracks either as they stomp straight in to the next providing you with even more heavy handed and jaw gripping hardcore for you to bang your head to. Each of the six tracks on this release are pumped full of fist pumping energy that gets you involved right from the start as you shout along with each lyric. Abolitionism is a memorable and well put together record that hits the nail right on the head.

With Abolitionism, The Noble have put together a positive yet undeniably heavy and bone rattling sound that is easy to get in to and easy to want to continue listening to. Through this EP you are treated to six really solid tracks that never get old even after listening plenty of times and when you are done they stick to you and rattle around in your head for time to come.

Abolitionism will  be released April 20, 2018

Employed To Serve: The Warmth Of A Dying Sun

November 9, 2017

Why it has taken me so long to discover Employed To Serve is well beyond me. Ever since stumbling upon them the other day and listening to their newest record The Warmth Of A Dying Sun, I have to say that they may be one of the finest hardcore acts out right now. Employed To Serve brings pure, raw, visceral energy to their music that creates a very catastrophic and devastating atmosphere. There is so much energy and aggression pumped in to this record that you almost feel inclined to just break shit and bash your skull against a wall.

From the first note on you are encircled in a chaotic moshpit of nothing but purely destructive and venomous hardcore and yet you don’t want to leave the pit. The Warmth Of A Dying Sun certainly is an abrasive and wholly chaotic record, but even so you feel the need to listen over and over again to get your skull grinding fix. Even as caustic as this record is, it still is hypnotic in its own twisted kind of way. Once you start listening you just can’t help yourself but to listen all the way through and then listen again.

Each of the ten tracks that appear on this release are gritty and grimy and make you feel uncomfortable because of how aggressive and in your face they are. These tracks are punchy, venomous, blunt and down right deadly. The Warmth Of A Dying Sun is an undeniably heavy and relentless record that chews you up and spits you out the other side once it is done with you. With that being said you end up jumping right back in and taking that beating all over again. This release is addicting honestly and the more that you listen, the more that you seem to not be able to pull yourself away from your speakers.

With all of their aggression, Employed To Serve ends with Apple Tree, where the band takes a different direction in their approach. Apple Tree is slower and more melancholic and somber in mood and yet it definitely rounds The Warmth Of A Dying Sun out perfectly. This track is more emotional and nearly serene compared to the other nine tracks that came before it. Apple Tree is a welcome and almost warm sight as well as a great way to end such a chaotic, well rounded and well crafted record.

The Warmth Of The Dying Sun is a great record. One that is harsh, punishing, chaotic, captivating and just an all around solid release. Employed To Serve is a unique band, one that takes hardcore and twists it to their liking creating a sound that is all their own and in turn creating such a solid record.
