Agnostic Front has been the face of New York City hardcore since the days when Alphabet City was unsafe after dark. Now that the average East Village resident is more likely to grab some brunch with a friend on Sunday morning instead of nursing a stab wound, it's easy to forget the power and desperation behind Agnostic Front's prime material. They aim to remind the world with their new album, WARRIORS, as tough a slab of old-school hardcore as you're likely to hear anytime soon.
Singer Roger Miret tears into the tales of perseverance, unity, betrayal, crime, and suffering that have long made up the bulk of the Front's lyrical fixations with his choked, vicious bark while the music thrashes about like boot-clad feet. Songs like "Dead to Me" hit like broken masonry while "For My Family" looks back with fondness and respect at New York's hardcore community. The real thing is still available for anyone who doesn't think they can get pure hardcore anymore.
