AGNOSTIC FRONT

Get Loud! NUCLEAR BLAST

-

NYC hardcore punk originals keep the home fires burning

A band who have been fundamenta­l to the evolution of hardcore punk, Agnostic Front have long since proved their worth. At this point in their career, there’s less need for something transforma­tive, more that their sound and spirit still prove solid and strong. We’re safe; this 13th full-length remains true to their roots and is delivered with believable discontent, and fervour. Among the 14 tracks, there are a few obvious moments and lyrical dips, but the wellplaced gang shouts in Conquer And Divide, inclusive thrash vibe of AF Stomp, and rumbling bass and classic Roger Miret vocals in Get Loud are all spot on. It’s the hearty nostalgia and exhilarati­ngly melodic, pitworthy pace of I Remember

that deserves the biggest cheer, though. ■■■■■■■■■■
