Have it All - 2013 - Changes

 Have It All are a five piece international hardcore band with members based in Padova, Italy) & Dusseldorf, Germany. Changes is their second EP. Have It All play a brand of hardcore that instrumentally owes a debt to both emo. The singer has a solid desperate shout and the guitars bring just the right amount of melody to enhance the crunch and squeal. The guitars on Circles remind me of Thoughts Paint The Sky and in general there is a tendency towards a heavy brand of hardcore that is heading in the direction of metalcore. These songs are usually very heavy  but they counterbalance that by bringing a sense of melancholy melody. Highly recommended. Highlights include Side By Side, Untitled, Circles and Create. If you like your hardcore heavy and fast while still leaving room for some emo, Have It All's Changes will serve well.
