Straight edge hardcore bands usually come with excessive baggage, and xBishopx is no exception. 14 tracks of seething anger is what this Florida five piece emit, from the SOD-inspired “Go Fuck Yourself” to the Bury Your Dead meets Sick of It All moshfest on “Eat Shit” and “Suicide Party”. Chances are this band isn’t going to win any awards for best vernacular used, as a majority of the lyrics scathingly contain expletives not suitable for the dinner table, but when it comes to producing furious slabs of straight edge hardcore, these guys bring it. Even though the message behind xBishopx’s music becomes wearisome after a while, the band’s passion for their lifestyle and for dropping sonically brutal hardcore are undeniable.
