DEAD END starts with a sample from a film soaked in machine gun fire, and the onslaught continues, as Seventh Star's brand of hardcore has arrived like a smack to the teeth. This Florida quintet have got a lot of metal riffs purging out of those guitars, a la Hatebreed and the ilk, yet there's a strong tough guy hardcore vibe just like old school Madball here as well. It's that one-two combo that carries the 11-track album and makes Seventh Star a nice up and coming act to coincide with the likes of Sworn Enemy, Poison the Well, and Full Blown Chaos.
