QUESTION WHAT YOU LIVE FOR
Credited with bringing the hardcore sound to the Midwest, this Minnesota based quartet opt for the fast, punk style of hardcore a la 7 Seconds and Shutdown and sound as if they spent years in a basement in Brooklyn perfecting the craft of tight, rasping hardcore music. While Holding On is no stranger to putting out discs or touring, the band is still in the early stage of its career, a scary thought considering that it'd be hard to top the aggressive stomp and near perfect mix of melody and moshpit action that these 15 tracks yield. Just check out the sing along choruses in "All Or Nothing" or the Sick of it All patterned chaos of "From Here" and see for yourself that Holding On is here, and they're not going away anytime soon. Anyone that remotely likes hardcore needs this album.
