Verse – ‘Aggression’ record check-out

Verse - Aggresion record out now!

Verse is a band out of Providence, USA and if you have been following hardcore music for several years, then you have heard of this band which is relentless in keeping to it’s roots and playing straight-forward hardcore music. This third release from Verse goes by the name “Aggression’ and you can easily say that the name works out quite well.

I personally like the way the record doesn’t stray into new fields of music so you get a chance to hear how well they play as a unit. Sure, it can be good for bands to go off and try something new but it happens too often that it isn’t the band you started liking the first time you heard them. Nothing completely new or amazing on this record, but I bet they are more than worth the entrance fee for a live gig.
