Hoods/Freya
Split CD (Victory Records)

By: Mike SOS

Teaming up for a split CD are two of hardcore's unsung heroes, Hoods and Freya. Up first are Hoods, whose West Coast tough guy stance and blistering guitars emanate pure rage and fury, especially on the malice-filled "In Love With a Whore", documenting another blissful relationship gone awry. Direct and to the point, Hoods mince no words and deliver the goods as raw as humanly possible. Freya, on the other hand, display a different kind of heavy, leaning on the metalcore side of the fence while implementing melodic guitars into the molten mix of songs like "Immortal Beloved". Not unlike former band Earth Crisis, the outfit's explosiveness is benchmark, as the dynamic twists and turns Freya utilizes make songs like "Ashes of Troy" boil over with aggression. For an abrasive assault on your ears, look no further than this split CD.
