FURY - 'Paramount' review



FURY - 'Paramount' review


Every now and again, a hardcore band comes along that just does it right (I'm thinking HAVE HEART, EXPIRE, xREPENTANCEx, etc.) and FURY are one of those bands. They basically sound like all of the best 90s REVELATION RECORDS hardcore bands smushed together; fast, heavy and angry both musically and vocally, think YOUTH OF TODAY and GORILLA BISCUITS but with a really solid, up-to-date production. 'Death Yellows Life and Reason' pretty much sounds like a perfect mix of BOLD and BATTERY. Yup, it's that good. Lyrics are more personal than political as far as I can tell, and expect lots of break-neck drumming, palm-muting, and solid riffs, while 'In Extremis' brings a slight change of pace, working with heavy repetition. I recommend checking out 'Damage is Done' or 'The Fury' for something to go on, but if you like the aforementioned bands, you'll love every second of this. I also have to give them extra credit for listing SHAKESPEARE and VONNEGUT in the lyrics credits. Awesome.
