Reviews Under Anchor There is No End

Under Anchor

There is No End

Despite my close proximity to the state, it’s been quite a while since I’ve heard something new from Michigan that’s caught my interest. Under Anchor is the first band to do so in a while. They are a three-piece hardcore band that draws equally from the youth-crew sound and metallic hardcore of the 90’s.

There is No End is the debut full-length from the band. Over the course of these ten songs the band unleashes a dramatic concoction of hardcore that could put the band on bills alongside Have Heart or Verse. For the most part the band sticks to two/three-minute songs with mid-paced riffing and breakdowns with shouted vocals. Occasionally the band does mix into some more chaotic moments, but for the most part they stick to what they do best. Lyrically things concern themselves with typical topics: loss, loneliness, betrayal, etc. A nice accompaniment to the lyrics is brief explanations, which gives the band a more down to earth quality. Overall, a good debut that shows promise.
