Ability

Expired

Ability is a five-piece hardcore band from the Northern outskirts of Los Angeles. Expired is their debut effort and the 7” features five cuts of solid mid-tempo hardcore. Musically the band mixes together the guitar tones of Bad Brains with the thick rhythm sounds of Burn. “Work of Ages” is a good example of what the band has to offering. The last track, “Swallowed,” has kind of a Betrayed meets Inside Out sound to it, but that’s probably because Todd Jones wrote the song (he is credited with writing it, which seems rather odd that this is the second band this year I’ve encountered with this footnote). Overall, this is a good debut that is quite reminiscent of the early Revelation catalog.
