Various Artists
“Songs of Hope and Hatred”
(Sadistic Records)

First of all
comps are hard to review because the content is so diverse and some songs
are great and others sound like they were fecal matter in a past life. This
Comp held a pretty good pace and the reincarnated shit wasn’t too much of an
issue. Bands that deserve praise are Metalcore’s Death before Dishonor,
Cloaca, Flashlight Arcade, Torrential Downpour, and Victory Flag and
Chernobyl Kids. This comp is pretty good for fulfilling your angriest of
moods. Good Hardcore comps are hard to come by, although “Songs of Hope and
Hatred” belongs on the side of the good ones.
