H2O – Nothing to Prove – Review

March 1, 2008

If you’re a fan, here’s their latest. If you’re a fan of mid-’90s melodic punk and looking for some solid bands to check out, buy me a few drinks.

H2O – Go – Review

February 22, 2002

Go is powerchords glazed with sweetness; singalongs at every turn. And the next album might see H2O dangerously close to commercial rock.

World Warped III Live – Review

September 1, 2000

They finally made the Warped comps a documentation of the live music instead of just a collection of the artists’ already pre-existing album tracks.

Punk-O-Rama – 5 – Review

September 1, 2000

A lotta punk inspires me to smash jewel cases, not the state, so when I wanna relisten to/go-get-the-latest by some of these bands, that says a lot.

Incompatible2 – Review

September 1, 1999

Tons of bands, tons of songs, shitloads of videos and interviews. As usual, there’s an art gallery and photo gallery, and a funny “Star Wars Tattoo” feature.

H2O – F.T.T.W. – Review

September 1, 1999

Sticking by their “unity” ideology, light-hearted melodic tendencies, and overall fun/energetic vibe, their records have been getting better and better.

Decampitated – Review

June 1, 1999

Funny combination: B-flick horror movie theme (which doesn’t take itself too seriously) with metallic hardcore (which takes itself way too seriously).

Punk-O-Rama – 3 – Review

April 1, 1999

While there’re songs I like better then those chosen to represent the bands, that might just clue ya into the fact I own a fuckload of Epitaph’s records.

Wicked City – Review

November 1, 1998

An indie movie about running away, life on the streets of New York, temptation, danger, and friendship, Wicked City is a timeless story, but with timely music.

H2O – Thicker Than Water – Review

March 1, 1998

Like Bouncing Souls (only more NY hardcore), H2O are never as good on record as they are on stage, but Thicker than Water is better than a stick in the eye.

Creepy Crawl Live – Review

June 1, 1997

Fifteen New York heavyweights, all live. You name it, Murphy’s Law, Warzone, Ensign, Cold Front, H2O, they’re all here.

H2O – Review

August 1, 1996

Melodic hardcore with a sound that is both early D.C. and N.Y.C. Not a pale imitation, mind you, H2O actually do justice to this period.

H2O – Seveninch – Review

April 1, 1996

Solid, melodic hardcore, like a sped up Marginal Man. They gain points by flogging a seemingly dead horse until it hobbles onto all fours and starts galloping.
