Get Back Up

Weathering the Storm

Buffalo, NY's Get Back Up unfortunately sounds like every other new school hardcore band out there playing in local venues across the United States and probably Canada. They sound like a mixture of the heavy handed emotionally drone of Modern Life is War and the crunchy 90's hardcore metallic speed inspired Have Heart. I enjoy what I'm hearing as the CD spins through nine tracks but Weathering the Storm isn't reinventing the wheel or even making the wheel noticeable. Get Back Up is good at what they do but once the CD stops they will be as remembered as much as the heaps of other hardcore bands I've heard in the last few years that sound exactly like this. Funny thing is though, I never seem to want to sell off these types of CDs, so at least that's something.
