You know what; maybe there really is a way for there to be too much of a good thing. Thankfully, Boston's Some Kind Of Hate play fast and to the point enough that getting bored would just about impossible. These guys play straight forward hardcore, in the vein of, well, most of Bridge 9's roster..

You know what; maybe there really is a way for there to be too much of a good thing. Thankfully, Boston's Some Kind Of Hate play fast and to the point enough that getting bored would just about impossible. These guys play straight forward hardcore, in the vein of, well, most of Bridge 9's roster.

While this release doesn't really have any moments that make my jaw drop, or anything overly spectacular, it's still worthy of a listen. The music simply drives and drives on, it's not heavy in the sense of metalcore bands, but it hits harder than most. The band's philosophy isn't hard to find, they don't exactly prattle around with florid metaphors or wordy lyrics. Take the second track for example, the subtly titled "Fuck These People." If the repeated shouting of "fuck you" doesn't get the point across, then nothing will. Fans of Slapshot and earlier Kill Your Idols take note, you'll like this one.

There isn't a whole lot of variety on this album, but the songs fly by so fast that you really don't have time to notice. While musical diversity might not be this band's strong suit, I'd rather hear them do one style well than awkwardly try to branch out in an a half-hearted attempt to broaden their fan base.

Pretty much, if you like this kind of stuff, I'd recommend at least checking out a couple songs. This is an album that oozes with tenacity and just makes you want to get up and do something. The first time I heard this I ended up rearranging my room. I don't see this band bringing loads of new fans into hardcore or being any sort of gateway band, but most fans will probably appreciate this release. Ground breaking? No. Good, pissed off hardcore? Yes.

"fuck these people" has the most awesome ending to a song ever.

"this is great, and you below go eat somewhere on the groundbreaking emo or metal table."

SO because I dont't like this I have to listen to emo and metal? There is no such thing as being a hardcore or punk fan that does not want to listen to bands that fall back on playing simple boring throw back songs to a time when it was acceptable to just throw any bullshit song together as long as you are "pissed off" about something. I'm sick of people taking offense when you say you dont like "their music". By you getting upset that I state my opinion shows how much you think you are special cause you like a fucking band. I remember when people had a hardtime accepting civil rights and if the world was round. I guess people are just stubborn.

This score is for fucking Bridge 9.

Expect the super limited, green swirled, alternate cover, ultra limited, hand-silkscreened, gluestick apocalypse version to appear on ebay for about $500 which will go straight into this kid's fucking pocket.

To quote Life's Halt: "Who gives a fuck what color the record is, as long as the fucking thing plays!!!"

So don't buy the limited edition vinyl. Why do you fucking care?

not the best bridge 9 band, but still good like other people have said. Good hardcore.

Pretty good stuff, if not the most original or even the best Bridge 9 band.

I wonder how many bands have made this same record. I'm tired of a band playing simple boring punk/hardcore and being praised cause they play it fast and "keep it real". Bring something new to the table or I'm gonna go eat somewhere else.

I've always heard good things about these guys. Anyone disagree, or want to prove me right>?

a great bunch of guys and a pretty damn quality record. matt pike [vocals] is everything that's right with hardcore, not to mention fatherhood. support these cats... they deserve it.
