X bystander X

There have already been a number of solid hardcore records released this year, but let's add one more to the pile with Bystander.

I'm wary of older hardcore dudes that seem to come out of retirement and put together new bands ten or more years after their original heyday. I'm not doubting their sincerity or passion, but there are times when the whole affair just falls flat.

With Greg Bennick from Trial picking up the mic again, and fronting Bystander, I just had a feeling that this was going to be good. I was not disappointed.

This record is great, and Greg spits lyrics sounding like we are still back in the late 90's.

The packaging for this is very well done, with the fold out cover that is embossed with a nice big "X". 150 pressed on baby blue colored vinyl.
