Through Trials & Plead the Fifth - Split

Oh for the love Mike, I need to stop swooping down on these split CDs on the promo list. I am always disappointed. I mean I try to be all for new bands and their new music but Through Trials and the Plead the Fifth are trying to battle out for being the most generic hardcore band of all time. And the winner? Surely not this reviewer. Through Trails goes through the motions of playing mid-tempo hardcore with somewhat nasally vocals and it's never anything great. They have nice crunch to the guitars and of course breakdowns, but what hardcore band doesn't? Snoozefest.

Plead the Fifth is more of the same, but a little more thuggish in their delivery. If you like Trapped Under Ice and want to hear their uninspired little brother, than Plead the Fifth is just for you. When they play fast they do remind of Striking Distance, with none of the anger of the all out mosh fun of that band. I could care less if I ever heard either one of these bands again. I know hardcore isn't always known for its originality but please do something a little different every once in awhile.
