BATTERY- Whatever It Takes...
Battery are back, and they have managed to impress me again. This is their fourth full-length, and their best one so-far. These four guys from Washington perform an extremely powerful and emotional style of old-school straight edge hardcore with lots of sing-alongs and very sincere lyrics. Brian McTernan is without a doubt one of the genre's best vocalists - and he has much more to say than empty phrases! The last of the 12 tracks called "Whatever it takes.." is without any doubt one of the best hardcore-unity hymns I've ever heard. Definitly one of the best hardcore releases of the last years... if only the production wasn't so wishy-washy!
