Comeback Kid
Wake Up The Dead (Victory Records)

By: Mike SOS

Comeback Kid, a Canadian outfit formed by members of Figure Four, works hard on its sophomore effort to illuminate the old school hardcore positive mentality and scolding sonic output on Wake Up The Dead. Relentlessly chugging through 11 tracks containing hearty sing along choruses wrapped inside lightning fast tempos and heartfelt guitar riffs, this quintet's throwback style keeps it visceral. Sounding like a cross between Snapcase, Terror, Shutdown, and Blood for Blood, tracks like the pit stomping "Talk is Cheap" and the punishing breakdown found on "Falling Apart" should keep the kids active on the floor, while the straightforward assault of "Bright Lights Keep Shining" would find proper refuge on any Sick of It All album. Bestowing no nonsense, dead-on hardcore for purists, Comeback Kid's latest release is a welcomed reprise.
