THE BREAK IN
Tough guy straight edge metalcore from the UK, The Break In's brooding 10-track release is chock full of bitter screams of content, raging guitars, and no nonsense chugga-chugga breakdown hardcore. Tracks like "Iron Hammer" rips your face off with its Hatebreed head-nod rhythm, while "Give Them Hell" may be a bit stock, but is packed with pure passion. The best part about UNBOWED is unequivocally the vocals, boasting a snarl that transcends metal and hardcore and truly stands out amongst the musical pounding. The Break In are by far not the most unique band out there, but they follow the Hatebreed/Earth Crisis playbook well enough to get circle pits going.
