Blood for Blood
Serenity (Thorp Records)
By: Mike SOS
The bad boys from Boston have returned, and no, it's not Aerosmith on a blues kick. It's the white trash hardcore mongers Blood for Blood, back from a hiatus of sorts, with a crushing new nine-track endeavor. This time around, Serenity finds the Beantown quartet implementing some melody in its anthemic poundings, giving the outfit some versatility. But fear not, hardcore purists, the seething anger and lower middle class fighting spirit is still very much at the core of songs like "Live the Lie" and "My Jesus Mercy". Providing a departure from its early days of beatdowns and broken bones, yet still retaining the integrity of a band that has its ear to the ground and its roots in the streets, Blood for Blood's latest release is a welcomed return by a band who haven't forgotten the struggle.
