This CD will rock you. For about thirty-five minutes straight, this CD will rock you. Not once does Since By Man let up on this, their debut for Revelation Records. After 10 tracks [and one intro], you're let up for air, but just fast enough to press the "Play" button again. Contained within.

This CD will rock you.

For about thirty-five minutes straight, this CD will rock you. Not once does Since By Man let up on this, their debut for Revelation Records. After 10 tracks [and one intro], you're let up for air, but just fast enough to press the "Play" button again.

Contained within this disc is some of the most innovative, just plain ass-kicking hardcore the Midwest has ever cultivated. If I were to make some sloppy comparisons I'd say Since By Man falls somewhere in between the realm of a much heavier Thursday but a not nearly-as-technical Dillinger Escape Plan. What does this mean, exactly? Well, there's no wussy singing in their repertoire, but they can definitely bring the hooks to the table to combat their tricky guitar riffs. This CD is almost dancable, in a sense - I find myself convulsing in my chair more and more with each listen.

I'm not a big fan of hardcore music, but I know a winner when I hear one. Since By Man just may be your favorite hardcore album of 2003, if you're willing to trust 5 kids from Milwaukee to punch you in the gut and have you come back and ask for more.

And yeah, you'll be coming back for more.

it's kinda a pointless arguement, but this is a canadian based website...

relay1112 (February 9, 2003)

I think what I meant is that guy who said this is an internatinal website is a fuckin twat. Regardless of what kind of website this is, it's good to see a Milwaukee band getting exposure. Also, I'd be willing to bet that 95% of the visitors here are from the States.

shai hulud = may 20, final date.

i think that guy a few posts below meant...
It's good to see a milwaukee band getting recognized on a website that is pretty well known throughout the united states.

It's supposedly going to be out in April, but who knows?

evilash (February 6, 2003)

"since when are thursday and dillinger escape plan anything near hardcore? hmm.

rev is terrible now. think about what they used to release in the early 90's and what they release now. they have gone so downhill its sick."

Lets not try to say what is or isn't hardcore. That's like the whole "what's punk" debate. With this and the new Shai Hulud CD(if it ever comes out),Revelation is doing just fine.

drewcifer (February 5, 2003)

YEAH! i'm gonna get a realplayer to listen to this track... no wait i'm sarcastic and an asshole!

wouldn't this site be considered international, since it's on the internet, aka "the world wide web"... how would you go about creating a website that can only be viewed by people of a certain state or scene

relay1112 (February 4, 2003)

Great to see a Milwaukee band on a national website. Since By Man deserves all the credit they get.

See also Seven Days of Samsara, Textbook Traitors, etc.

Kill sadie does it better

burstandbloom (February 4, 2003)

gotcha

maverick (February 4, 2003)

In my book, anything that I give 3.5 stars or more is worth buying. This album isn't the best thing to come out this year, but it's definitely enjoyable, even for someone like me who isn't into much hardcore.

-Scott

burstandbloom (February 4, 2003)

It looks like this was a great album. So why only 3.5 stars?

Amazing cd. Best thing Rev. put out since Fall Silent last year, and By A Thread a bunch of years ago. Hardcore continues it's evolution... - Jordan Pastepunk

REALPUNX4LIFE (February 4, 2003)

I haven't heard the disc yet, but Since By Man is fucking awesome. And I hate hardcore. Their single on World Won't Listen (I forget the title) is outstanding. I'll be looking for this record.

pope_schlomo (February 4, 2003)

Cool disc. Kind of reminded me of Drowningman. Maybe a little too much. Oh well, still like it.
