The Walls Will Fall EP

FILE UNDER: Hardcore Groove

ROCKS LIKE: Stick To Your Guns, Hundredth, Bane

WHAT'S DIFFERENT: The Walls Will Fall adds a chug-tastic flair to Terror’s classic hardcore sound with guitar riffs reminiscent of Pantera’s golden age. Tracks like “Balance The Odds” and “No Love Lost” dip cautiously into the metal sphere, breaking the EP out of its more rigid beatdown vibe.  

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE: Vocalist Scott Vogel has branched out of his scene-driven agenda, focusing less on living by the code of hardcore and more on the overarching atmosphere of Trump’s America: The lyrics “Living in a sick world/Living in these violent times/The walls will fall/It’s got to change” accusingly ring out on the EP’s title track.

OUR PICK: “Kill ’Em Off”
