The Curse is a band that claims that they have regained the missing link that was hardcore back in the day. While this Philadelphia based quartet have made a very bold claim, they're not too far off the mark, although they sound a bit too polished a la H20 to be proclaiming such a victory. No matter, because the six-song eponymous collection connects like a left hook and will send you back into a time when hardcore was just exploding on the West Coast and, like Grandma's Sunday dinner, was an institution of Sunday afternoons in the NYC. Fast, loud, heavy and above all, angry, The Curse, an outfit that impressively boasts members of bands like Paint It Black, Lifetime and Kid Dynamite, wheel out the warhorse like pros and deliver an authoritative hardcore offering.
