Set Foot is a fairly straightforward hardcore band from Vancouver, British Columbia. They may hail from the Pacific Northwest but they’re far different from their brethren in the likes of Champion, Sinking Ships, Blue Monday, etc. Rather than draw influence from the worlds of youth crew and posi-revival hardcore, Set Foot takes to the metallic edge.
Aging is the band’s debut offering. The six songs bring together blistering riffage, a thundering rhythm section, and an aggressive vocal delivery. The songs combine the heaviness of 90’s hardcore sound with a bit of a thrash influence, not unlike Pulling Teeth. The lyrics are introspective and somewhat revealing, but never come off as overly personal.
Set Foot is a young band worth looking into. They’re off to a good start with this 7”. I’d like to hear a longer recording so I could see a bit more variety in their songwriting.
