Fear Before the March of Flame
Art Damage (Equal Vision Records)

By: Mike SOS

Unsettling, uncompromising, and unconventional are the best ways to describe this manic hardcore quartet. Hailing from Colorado, Fear Before The March of Flames is still barely of legal drinking age, but with the seething anger and vast musical repertoire showcased on Art Damage, you'd never guess these guys are all in their early 20's. Angular riffs collide with jagged guitar riffs while flailing drum lines and an anguished, abrasive lead throat make situations like the ones created on "The Story of the Curious Oysters" and "Law of Averages" that much more uncomfortable. 11-tracks of disheveled aggression are dished out here by these artsy new school merchants, who successfully juxtapose hardcore heaviness and metallic math rock into one compact blast.
