Hailing from Braddock/Brooklyn and featuring current and former members of CREEM, Natural Law, and R.A.M.B.O., Hounds Of Hate play unrepentantly straight edge hardcore. The sounds on their debut LP are reminiscent of NYHC in the late 80's, bringing to mind bands like Sick Of It All, Life's Blood and Warzone. This is bleak and stomping midtempo hardcore with some Oi influences and a strong "us vs them" attitude. It's all in good taste though, no watered down or rehashed sounds. Don't miss out if you're into HARDCORE.
