Stronger_than_ever-Rueban_ee3Rueban is the solo project of Rueban Issac who also provides drums and vocals for the alternative-metal band Onslaught.  Based in Hyderabad, India, Rueban previously released Indestructible in 2013. From their bio, the band cites influences from a Who’s Who list of NYHC bands and other legendary hardcore bands including Madball, Agnostic Front, Snapcase, Earth Crisis, and Hatebreed, while at the same time also including influences from other genres including Living Sacrifice, Helmet, Deftones, and Sevendust.  The goal of the band fits within the hardcore ethos of spreading a positive mental attitude (PMA), while also incorporating the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.

A bit of feedback over the sounds of a tv preacher opens up the album followed by some chugga-chugga hardcore riffs in “Strength through Faith” in a song that sounds very much like something one would hear from a NYHC band.  Immediately, my thoughts turn to the vocals which, not surprisingly, do sound a lot like those from Rueban’s other band Onslaught but at the same time are mixed to almost sound like a sing-along in some parts.  Overall the general sound and tone are a bit different, maybe a bit too thin for the typically muscular NYHC sound.
