TO THIS DAY
CHAPTER 1: BETWEEN THE BRIDGES
Buffalo straight edge quartet To This Day are a bludgeoning hardcore bunch for sure, as the unit's 11-track debut definitively showcases. Ripping pages right from the Hatebreed playbook, the band's chugga-chugga riffs and razor throated screams found on "Nameless" and "Texas Funerals and Flapjacks" are best accompanied with 50 or more shirtless dudes beating the hell out of each other in a confined space. While To This Day is undeniably crushing, their arrangements and overall presentation is quite basic, a trait that sadly lumps them with the countless other brutal bands that display the tough guy attitude and follow the same musical templates ad nausea.
