Hot damn, it’s good to listen to old-fashioned, ass-kicking hardcore punk! I hope these guys have stock in bass drum heads and throat lozenges; I’m sure they go through a lot of them.
So Say We All is an 11-track musical masterpiece. You get screamish vocals from a frontman who can also sing, classic punk guitar notched up with nu-metal riffs, staunch and strumbly bass support, and insanely exceptional drumming. Clever nuggets of movie quotes pop up between songs with lyrics ranging from introspective, self-abasing, life-loving and regime challenging — brilliant.
Heads Held High deliver an album that makes you want to go out and drive fast, drink hard, and kiss beautiful strangers. I can’t wait til they tour the West Coast — go get this CD, learn the lyrics so we can go sing along when they’re here.
