Speak 714
The Scum Also Rises 7" (Revelation Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Dan O'Mahoney and crew are back with a 7" follow up to their debut LP and folks this is the type of hardcore that puts a huge smile on your face while it kicks you in the teeth. This is the way that hardcore felt during its huge surge in popularity during the late eighties. Thick, pummeling, aggressive and forceful are the adjectives that jump to mind while listening to this record but I gotta admit my thinking may be a bit fuzzy considering how hard this record is hitting me upside the head. O'Mahoney was the voice behind such stellar acts (and personal favorites) as NO FOR AN ANSWER and CARRY NATION and I expect nothing but brilliance from him each and ever time out of the chute. With SPEAK 714 he delivers.
