Over the past few months, I've received a few records to review. Not too many, but a handful that I haven't really spent much time with as my record collection is still swelling from the influx of all the great Japanese records I bought in Tokyo. Those, plus some excess older 90's things I picked up from one of my buddies and I've just had a lot on my plate. I'm going to make a conscious effort to try to get caught up and this Hero Dishonest LP is my first attempt.
Unfortunately, I don't have a lot to say about this record. It's one of those head scratchers that make me wonder why it was sent to me. It's loud, fast, screaming hardcore from Finland. Is it good hardcore or bad hardcore? I don't know that I'm really qualified to say as I just don't like this sort of punk rock. You have your punk, I have mine.
I'm pretty sure the lyrics are in Finnish, though they could be Swedish or even English and I still don't think I'd have any idea what the band was talking about. Whatever it is, they sure seem upset about something. I don't know. Take a listen if you like this sort of thing, but it just gives me a headache.
