i and everyone i know who ever listened to hardcore used to LOVE the hope conspiracy. Their first ep and cold blue have some of the greatest, angriest hardcore songs I've ever heard. And I, along with all those people, HATED endnote. They lost all their anger, all their heaviness, everything. They became a "blah" hardcore band to us. To me, this new one is still nowhere near their early stuff, but it is a huge improvement and a huge return to the anger and brutality that seemed to kind of go away. I'm pretty psyched about it, and I still say they have the angriest sounding singer in all of hardcore. Great album, and I hope they stick around and keep making good stuff like this.
