Judgement Day, the American Straightedge Hardcore from SoCal is back with an ep showing a much more muscular sound than on their demo and shifting toward slower brand of metalcore from the metal-influence hardcore on their demo.

Around six years ago, I reviewed the demo from JudgementXDay and thought a lot of what I heard had a lot of promise, but then I never really heard anything after that, so seeing this come across my desk, made me go back to the demo.  Since the demo, the band had released a full length in 2016, The Altar, and the sound there serves as a good intermediate between the demo and this ep.  The sound this time around is much heavier, even slower and sort of sludgy at times, which contrasts quite a bit from the faster demo and The Altar from several years ago.  This time around the ep was recorded and mixed by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues) at The Pit Studios, Van Nuys, California and mastered by Audiosiege, Portland, Oregon.

It is hard to find more information about this band so I will continue to the actual album review of this six song EP.

It all starts with an lovely acoustic guitar part with the sound of a thunderstorm in the back. Quickly followed by heavy hardcore as it should be. This song ‘Age Of Innocence’ features Chad Paramore of Messengers. Uptempo but also with slow heavy breakdowns. Continue reading »
