V/A – The Onslaught: A Hardcore Compilation
South Florida is no stranger to metallic hardcore, beginning it’s rich history of unmistakable bands over 20 years ago. Considering this, each track on The Onslaught continues on and improves upon the expectations before them with no hesitation. Sandman’s “Reborn” is one of their darkest and most desperate tracks. xElegyx, a band that has truly etched their sound in the minds of all who listen, provides “Spurn”. Castyoudown’s “Lifeless Words Behind a Mask” could be considered the pinnacle of their impermanent yet unequaled tenure. Drawing Last Breath’s “Blood Red Moon” musically lands between fantasy and aggression as a masterful finish to the compilation’s quality-over-quantity repertoire.
