When hardcore started it was fast, powerful and had a strong positive message. While today much of hardcore has lost its sense of positivity, The Frontline brings a great message and great music back with their debut EP, Withstand.
Frontline adds in an uplifting message without sacrificing the intensity, energy and power of the hardcore style. The lyrics speak of withstanding pain, living life one day at a time, and giving your all. Right now you're probably thinking to yourself, "This kid needs to shut up about their lyrics." Let me show you why I brought up their lyrics. Here is a sampling taken from one of their songs:
Will we ever have another chance to make up for the void in our lives?
Can we fill it with care?
Can we bind in with rope?
We must have hope!
Now you many of you may find that cheesy, but how many hardcore bands can you think of that talk about such positive things?
This band has strong influences from Chain of Strength, Insted and Youth of Today. So if you are a fan of any of these bands or any other positive hardcore band, I would give these guys a chance. They look to be one of the most promising bands in the hardcore scene right now.
