What is the big deal about Madball? It seems like every East Coast hardcore band owes their life to them. To me, they seem pretty insignificant, given the fact that the band was formed as an Agnostic Front side project [who I feel are much more influential], and there is only one original member left in the band. This just seems silly to be living off of past accomplishments. The music itself is nothing special, it's the same thing Madball's been doing forever, although this stuff sounds a bit more metal than some of their older material. I know people will slag me for this review, but those are the people who would have bought this regardless of what I would have said. More power to them. I say stay away from Madball.

"It seems like every East Coast hardcore band owes their life to them."
It's because they do. We're the most influential band to come out of the East coast, and hardcore wouldn't be the same without us. Watch your back next time you step into NY. You just made the NYHC shit list.

Ah Ok...So Listen:
1st- U're a f**kin' Dumbass who is spittin' on the HC world...
2nd- I Can Review Better Than U, because u look the album only by ur side...U r the only one that sucks! so Guys...stay away from this one...
3rd- Hardcore is not technique, isn't solos or other fuckin' stupid things...HARDCORE is from our Hearts...Hardcore is playin' what a true man feels....it can be hate, respect, pride, honor, faith...

SO GIVE A FUCKIN' RESPECT STUPID!

Cheers From Succio [HARDCORE SINGER]... BFU (BIG FAMILY UNITED CREW '97)..COMACCHIO - ITALY

Madball is the king of hardcore. If he could read, I'll bet him and his crew would come rip off your arms and beat you with them.
