Hmm, these guys seem more hardcore than on their split with I Hate Myself, but I can honestly say it's a turn for the better. When I put on this album, it just rips through me like a truck. Cranking out 11 songs in a little over 27 minutes, 12HT knows their shit. Comparisons to I Hate Myself,.

Hmm, these guys seem more hardcore than on their split with I Hate Myself, but I can honestly say it's a turn for the better. When I put on this album, it just rips through me like a truck. Cranking out 11 songs in a little over 27 minutes, 12HT knows their shit. Comparisons to I Hate Myself, Strikeforce Diablo, and others along the same genre are evident, but 12HT does bring a good amount of originality to the table, also. With dark, matter-of-fact lyrics such as "knee jerk? tear jerk? cold hearts couldn't care less" and "don't give them the fists to knock you down," 12HT contains some excellent songwriting and when the guy sings (or screams, rather) you can hear the raw pain contained deep in his throat. There's no upbeat pop diddies here, kiddies. This record is perfect for those days when everything goes wrong. Instead of breaking something, let the dischordant, raucous sounds of Twelve Hour Turn eliminate your rage for you.

Amazing band.

This guy knows what he's talking about. Twelve Hour Turn is an amazing amazing amazing band. They just released an EP "Bend Break Spill" on No Idea as well. Both are rocking affairs and their split with I Hate Myself is possibly the best split ever released. They're touring with Small Brown Bike this fall. Be sure to go if you're in their path of destruction (that last comment was so lame that it's cool.)
