Wall of Jericho
All Hail the Dead (Trustkill Records)
Holy crap! I had heard absolutely nothing from (or about) WALLS OF JERICHO until I slipped this CD into the stereo and it began to strip the flesh from my face. This is skull cracking neo-hardcore that still manages to somehow have a deeply imbedded melodic underpinning. The roots of this music could easily be traced back to the chugga-chugga NYHC sound of the 80s, but to that foundation they add razor sharp staccato guitar riffs (yes, metal tinged, but in a good way) and the throat shredding vocals of Candace Kucsalain. Fans of the 90s Victory sound are going to pee their pants when they hear this. I bet a dollar that a pit at a WALLS OF JERICHO show would make the violence of an NFL game pale by comparison. Simply put, this is brilliant and worth every penny you have to steal to buy it.
