J’Accuse is a five-piece hardcoreband from the Netherlands. As they state in their own words: “J’accuse! stands for speaking what we think is true, no matter what the consequenses are. We spare nothing or nobody, including ourselves. Formed in June 2012 to play lightning fast hardcore with honesty and passion, J’Accuse…! has seasoned hardcore veterans as it’s members. Between the five of them, they’ve played a couple of hundred shows, and it shows; energetic and aggressive, they know how to work a crowd.”

Now they are back with a new EP, call it an album with eight tracks if you wish, so let’s give it a listen.

It all begins with some French gibberish, okay my own fault that I don’t speak French. But when the bass kicks in all the mayhem breaks loose. Up-tempo hardcore with an aggression and melodic temperament that is continued throughout the whole album. To make it perfectly clear right from the start; don’t expect your typical New York hardcore….. Nope, it is so much more, Peter hasn’t got the average hardcore throat. It is more high pitched screams with low growls. Very refreshing! Towards the end of the track ‘Battles’ there are the more typical hardcore screams, done by Thomas I guess. Not bad, not bad at all… Thomas wrote all the music by the way. Continue reading »
