EXCLUSIVE METALSUCKS PREMIERE: SICK OF IT ALL – “BENT OUTTA SHAPE”
Sick Of It All have been representing New York Hardcore since the mid-eighties, years before some of you little metal manics were even conceived in the back of a station wagon by your drunken, blood-related parents. Over the years, their sound has always stayed grounded in this great city’s streetwise tradition even as the band achieved international success as one of the most known and respected NYHC bands of all time. Based On A True Story, the band’s first album in four years, continues in the metallic vein of Death To Tyrants but is considerably tighter and even more amped up. “Bent Outta Shape”, one of the album’s highlights, charges hard and never lets up, with an emboldened Lou Koller raising the bar for the countless hardcore frontmen that ride Sick of It All’s coattails. But don’t just take my word for it; TAKE A LEAK!
Based On A True Story is out April 20th via Century Media. Pre-order your copy here or wherever fucking awesome music is sold. The label is offering a bunch of package deals that mix and match CD and vinyl versions with exclusive t-shirts, FYI.
