How is it?
Instantly memorable and infectious, this six-track EP is quick and to-the-point, pummeling the listener with roughly 15 minutes of no-nonsense melodic hardcore. Featuring a sonic assault of serrated guitar riffs, cutting bass punctuation and tight, pounding percussion, Hell Is What You Make It is sure to please anyone looking for fun, urgent hardcore punk. The lyrics are also worthy of mention, touching on both social and personal matters, making for a relatable collection of songs. If you're at all curious about this band, it's highly recommended that you give them a listen as they are yet another excellent name on Paper + Plastick's roster. I can safely say I'm highly anticipating what they do next.
