Only The Strong
by Tim Den
Metalcore set to fast punk beats, you know it’s Victory at work again. Some good stuff here, particularly by No Innocent Victim, Vision, and Agnostic Front (duh). However, a quick skip through the disc will show that every song bears way-too-close-for-comfort resemblance to the others, making the comp overall too much of a mesh to pick out specific bands. Maybe picking bands with more original sound next time will help? Others appearing include Buried Alive, Cold As Life, Voice Of Reason, Inhuman, Kill Your Idols, In Truth, Death Threat, Built To Last, Hoods, Where Fear And Weapons Meet, and Unconquered.
