Death Before Disco
Party Bullet (Good Life)

By: Mike SOS

Belgium's Death Before Disco's name isn't the only thing that peaks interest about this quintet, as the outfit's 12-track release contains some of the most edgy and precarious hardcore heard on the scene today. Merging heavy riffs like the chugging one found on "Putting Power to the Pauze" with the kind of ethereal jam you'd find from A Perfect Circle on "Like Serpico", it's the band's remarkable ability to create diverse yet profound songs, making this band a unique entity. Pushing the boundaries of traditional hardcore every way they possibly can, Party Bullet showcases an anything goes mentality and a penchant for keeping the arrangements interesting, even when the jarring heaviness and staccato movement of "Kiss, Kill, Lolita" is more than enough to keep the kids windmilling in the pit. Death Before Disco is the kind of band that enjoys utilizing all of its strengths to the fullest advantage, and if you dig bands with similar mindsets like Minus, Thumb, and Converge, then Party Bullet is an album you should fully enjoy.
