I'll start things off with two solid releases of Straight Edge Hardcore.
Face Reality represent the Michigan Straight Edge. They released a great record back in 2009 with Positive Change. This new record shows a lot of growth for the band. The songs are harder and are more mature lyrically. That said, I'll say I like the Positive Change record more. The Youngblood record is really good, but I prefer that young, fun vibe of the first one. Word is that a new record is in the works, so I'll be looking forward to see what the band does next.
Hey Sean Youngblood, what's the pressing info for these?
Just like Face Reality, it has been three years since the last No Tolerance release, but when you are in as many bands as Justin DeTorre, what can you do? Once this record starts, it does not fuck around. Just like the Boston Straight Edge EP, this thing just continues with its harsh, fast attack...throttling you from start to finish.
I love the b-side labels on this. Youngblood Straight Edge.
