The score may make it seem lower than what it really is. It got graded down on vocals because any true hardcore band isn't going to have a Cristian Guerrero or whoever as a frontman. The voice is what it is. I think the most important scores you'll find in that review are the "Replayability" and "Staying Power". 75% is a good score in my book. I grade balls-to-the-wall.

Stick around AP, you seem like a cool as hell guy. How did you get hired? Where did Jason find you?


Awesome, I'll check them out. I'm assuming you're talking about your Ap.net journal. I was Editor at www.upbeetmusic.com for 4 years. For more info check the following thread:

I was reading the thread and it seems like you have tons to add to this site.

I wanted to expose more people to the music I love. This is certainly the venue. I still work for Upbeetmusic as well. Rob and I kind of built that site together. In the beginning, we were getting 30 hits a day. Now, it's a couple thousand. Which is pretty good in webzine world. Sites like ap.net and punknews.org are exceptional.

Yea, I'm looking forward to working here.

:amen:

Very well said, dude.
