FROM THE DEAD END BLOCKS WHERE LIFE MEANS NOTHING
Talk about bleak. Read aloud the title of Shattered Realm’s album title, and one can only fathom what this 11-track collection holds. If you guessed a durable display of tough guy hardcore a la Bury Your Dead and Blood for Blood, give yourself props, because that is exactly what this quintet unleashes without an ounce of remorse. Chugging guitar riffs leads the charge on “Endless”, while gravel throated pleas emblazoned with passion propel tracks like “Fallen” and “Eat Shit”. Despite the disc clocking in at a mere 22 minutes, and raking over the wares of Hatebreed, Madball, and Terror without a shred of regret, if you need a soundtrack to pillage and destroy to, look no further than this presentation of pent-up bruising hardcore.
