SINCE THE FLOOD
NO COMPROMISE
METAL BLADE

Earnest Massachusetts-based hardcore roaddogs Since the Flood take the blend of compressed aggression made popular today by bands like Hatebreed to heart across the entire span of NO COMPROMISE. This 12-track chest-thumper also recalls bits of NYHC stalwarts like Madball and Killing Time, especially when slugging it out on cuts like "Everything to Lose", while "Gone Tomorrow" effectively resonates the Merauder-esque mayhem of old and the speed of Sick of it All and the power of Terror collide on what becomes "At the End". Far from groundbreaking, this quintet's lacking of a strong sense of identity hurts them immensely here, , NO COMPROMISE focuses solely on bashing in skulls, leaving a trail of blood and bones behind with little else left to gnaw on for later.
