Once I saw the album cover for Pendulum Swings, I found myself suddenly intrigued. There was something about the front cover that made me think, "Hey, maybe I'll give this band a chance.". I quickly found a download for the album, and after a couple of listens, I was on my way to the Bridge Nine store to pick up a copy.
Expire play in the vein of bands like Backtrack, Trapped Under Ice, and other bands that play the current style of no-bullshit Hardcore with a tough guy edge. This style doesn't always fully grab my attention, but Expire do a pretty solid job with this LP.
