Hold the Crown epitomize this sound and showcase the peaks of H8000 with an incredibly modern lens. Many critics are too quick with the throwaway NYHC labels easily thrown at this band. This writer suggests there is more of a Cleveland sound underpinning this band mixed with death metal. The song structures are solid classic hardcore but add crushing metallic riffs and sensational death growls and you have a really refined band. Given this is their debut, one can suggest future releases will be held high if this is just the start of their glory. This is crushing metallic hardcore at it's best. Don't waste your time on average and generic hardcore. This is the real deal folks!.
Highlights: "Mindwar" with it's crushing groove and growls, "Rush Hour"; pure pit violence and "Dead 2 Me" note to piss-weak bands this is how you do clever beatdown.
