Madball
NYHC EP (Thorp Records)

By: Mike SOS

When you ask any current hardcore band ripping it up these days about its influences, a few names always pop up, and one of them is always Madball. Well, thanks to the resurgence of hardcore, with bands like Sworn Enemy and Hatebreed leading the pack while carrying the torch in their absence, the Queens, NY quartet have mounted a comeback. This four-song EP shows that the boys still have the wares to create powerful, gritty music that paved the way for the merger of the NYHC and metal scenes. By the looks and sounds of things, Madball stands to reign supreme again as one of the forefathers of hardcore.
