Counterparts - The Difference Between Hell And Home Cover

"Raw feeling, distilled through true musicianship"...

Following the chaotic tirades of their earlier offerings, this third album from the Canadian five-piece delivers a welcome progression; 11 tracks with all the anguish that melodic hardcore thrives on, but with enough testosterone to keep it on the right side of whiney. Their name comes from the Alexisonfire song ‘Counterparts And Number Them’ and moments here, like the spoken-word outpouring of ‘Decay’ and the meandering lead guitar of ‘Cursed’, give more than a nod to their recently-defunct countrymen. But in no way is this album mere imitation. This is raw feeling, distilled through true musicianship – exactly as great hardcore should be.
