Of Faith and Fire - Battleborn album cover

Of Faith and Fire

Battleborn, 2005

8.9 / 10

Whoa! It’s like I hit a time warp and traveled back to the early years of the NYHC scene. But I didn’t. Off Balance hail from Indianapolis and they’re out ...

Off With Their Heads - From the Bottom album cover

Off With Their Heads

From the Bottom, 2008

8.8 / 10

Remember when the Dropkick Murphy’s were good, when they were still a bunch of drunken rabble-rousers instead of highbrow hooligans cashing in on the idea that if you give any ...

Off With Their Heads - Home album cover

Off With Their Heads

Home, 2013

8.0 / 10

Maybe it’s because I caught Off With Their Heads live recently and maybe it’s because on Home, their third official full-length, the theme is something that songwriter Ryan Young has been ...

Off With Their Heads - In Desolation album cover

Off With Their Heads

In Desolation, 2010

7.5 / 10

Off With Their Heads have built a reasonable fanbase within the fest related punk scene. This is due to certain consistency in their style, without being all the same all ...

Off! - Self Titled album cover


Self Titled, 2012

8.7 / 10

This record is way too long. Nah, with 16 songs in 17 minutes, it’s shorter than a heart attack. And, hopefully, that will be my only elderstateman reference in here. ...

Off! - Wasted Years album cover


Wasted Years, 2014

7.0 / 10

I generally hate punctuation in a band name, but it’s uncommonly fitting with Off!. Sure, they only included it to keep the pesticide theme going, but every scrap of vitriol ...

It's a Struggle to Communicate, 2008

7.0 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Here’s something new for you. Well maybe not new, but something we don’t get much of these days. Offsides is a fast-paced melodic hardcore group from Connecticut with a female ...

Okie Dokie - Okie Dokie album cover

Okie Dokie

Okie Dokie, 2009

7.4 / 10

The band is named Okie Dokie. The artwork is simple and to the point. In other words, Okie Dokie doesn’t hide the fact that they’re a dirty rock band, blending ...

Okkervil River - The Stage Names album cover

Okkervil River

The Stage Names, 2007

8.9 / 10

It’s a rare commodity to find a record that just seems to get it right. I mean really get it. The kind of disc that echoes your little world, your ...

Okkervil River

The Stand Ins, 2008

9.0 / 10
Multiple Authors

I have this vaguely unpleasant sensation lately when listening to The Stand Ins that Okkervil River’s Will Sheff (guitar and vocals) is peering in the windows at me. I’m probably ...

Old Accusers - Of And Beyond album cover

Old Accusers

Of And Beyond, 2011

6.8 / 10

Technical prowess and hardcore usually do not go hand in hand. It seems that many bands in the genre succumb to the generic characteristics of heavy music, both musically and ...

Early Morning Hymns, 2004

9.8 / 10

Imagine waking up and stepping outside of a small cabin. The sun is just rising over the trees on a cool autumn day, the dew on the grass is still ...
