Benton Falls – Guilt Beats Hate – Review

Benton Falls

Guilt Beats Hate (Deep Elm)
by Tim Den

Like a heavier version of Cross My Heart, Benton Falls emos it like it’s ’97 without a care in the world. Just cuz it sounds a little dated doesn’t mean the songs aren’t great, right? If you can overlook the obvious time warp these guys are living in, there are a few gems in this thing. Although you should only do the whole “crazy guitar hammer-ons” thing if your band’s extremely tight. Benton Falls, on the other hand…
