Thorp Records have started a series titled UNSUNG, to commemorate bands that were seminal but never really received the accolades that they deserved. The latest band to be honored is Edgewise, a Philly based metalcore troupe whose 28-track history is captured here in its entirety for the first time. From its inception in the early '90s, Edgewise laid the groundwork for a lot of what we hear today in both metal and hardcore, encompassing the NYHC attitude with tight breakdowns and a metallic coating a la bands like Cro-Mags and Madball. Big ups to the folks at Thorp for giving the kids what they've been asking for and richly deserve, a chance to rediscover what makes all of their favorite bands great.
