Straight-edge hardcore is definitely something not everyone can get a handle on. The Promise, obviously named to signify their deep beliefs about lifestyle and their dedication to that lifestyle is another thrashing hardcore straight-edge band. Believer is filled with in your face punishing lyrics and a very fast-paced chug-chug attitude that proves they mean business. In one of the more noticeable tracks The Unwanted the song opens up with the lines This whole world dead in a haze. Plighted people, enslaved countries. Dulled to stay alive, afraid to live with sober eyes. I enjoy hardcore bands of this nature because they hold themselves to a higher moral standard than the rest of the world. Id go to a straight-edge show before church any day.
