They Live
A Taste of the Good Life 7" (625 Productions)

By: Jeb Branin

Hailing from upstate New York THEY LIVE are churning out some seriously fine core. Lightning quick tunes played with a classic hardcore thrash vibe and overlaid with multiple style vox. The vocals really jump out at me. They are venom filled and raging with a traditional hatecore edge most of the time but there are other flares as well, including a vicious grindcore roar. There is even the occasional Japanese flavored screech and a bit of hip hop. The music is blazing fast both in duration and delivery. Only three of these thirteen songs lasts over a minute (none is over two minutes) and the vast majority of them are under 30 seconds. But don't get the idea this is noisy blur ala A.C. These tunes are tight and are delivered with pinpoint accuracy right between the eyes. Maybe a more power violence flavored version of SORE THROAT? Maybe. All that matters is the fact that this is cataclysmic hardcore that has captured the sound and feel of the end of the world. Don't get left behind.
