Search-BETWEEN THE LINES — Revelation Records —

It was a year ago or two, that Tim McMahon (Singer of Search and mostly renown for having fronted Mouthpiece) asked on Instagram (and maybe other social media) if anyone wanted to start a new hardcore band. I don’t now if Search was born at this moment but apparently he found some friends to mess around. And it’s not “random” friends that answered the call. You got the best New Jersey’s players from the nineties, people from Floorpunch, Turning Point and Resurrection to name their most prominent accomplishment.

With a line up like that, I didn’t have high expectations. Don’t get me wrong, I just mean that I knew it would sound like it was ’97 all over again, and I didn’t get anything more. And I’m totally fine with that, the dudes know their jobs and they do it perfectly. It’s clearly not the record of the year for me, but you got 6 songs between Twin Killing and What Was Said, it’s efficient, it’s not cheesy, perfectly straight forward and it’s on Revelation Records, what else ?

When you’re good at something, keep doing it, sometimes it’s just for the better.

FFO : Do you remember hardcore ? Well they do.
