Reviews Meltdown Demolition

Meltdown

Demolition

Maybe the kids are just too young to remember, but back when hardcore bands were crossing over to metal and vice versa the hardcore kids hated it, really hated it. It was all poseur shit, bunch of fucking longhairs ruining the scene and what not. The worst thing a band could do was sign to Metal Blade or Megaforce. Having a guitar solo meant immediate persecution by the local die-hards. My how history has been distorted because currently the coolest thing a hardcore band is to pay 80's inspired crossover metal/hardcore and the kids are eating it up. Members of Verse, Learn and all about weight lifting, Meltdown is metal straight down to the thrash riffage and the demonic cover art. Bang your head, brahs.
