No Talk - Leather Discipline
I get mixed singles from this band. Usually hardcore is not particularly open to sexual deviancy and this album has that in spades. The artwork is eye catchingly homo erotic and the gang vocals all throughout do nothing to dissuade that aura. The guitars are nice and thick, the riffs are smooth and catchy and the powerful growl of the lead singer offset by just a tiny bit of clean singing. Hardcore usually isn't this catchy either, the focus tends to be on simply pounding your head in. These songs hold back just slightly so there's room to dance and sing along and for the songs to worm their way into your head. The whole thing's done in just over 22 minutes, way too short for songs this catchy.
