One thing that has been missing in music today, and something that I hold higher in my own personal opinion when judging a band, is HEART. Especially when it comes to the hardcore scene. I think that if a band doesn't have heart they won't last or even make a splash in the ever-growing scene. I'm glad to see that now more than ever heart is making a come back with bands like Touche Amore, Pianos Become The Teeth, The Carrier, Defeater, etc.

And Apart is one of those bands.

With their new EP, "Only Revolutions", Apart not only slaps you in the face with their earnest and sincere brand of emotional hardcore, they try to drive you through the floor with pure and raw emotion. And I'm proof that they have succeeded.

Drawing influence from the aforementioned juggernauts of today's scene, Apart seems to pull at your heart strings with every scream-filled word. Most notably, "I'll be your shoulders, I'll be your strength" from "Make Not A Single Sound Amongst Saints." The honesty in both the lyrical content and present within every scream gives the listener the true definition of emotional hardcore.

This is how I wish more bands sounded.

I do have one complaint though. I NEED more music from these guys. Not just want, NEED. Apart needs to be heard and more importantly respected. If only for how well they connect to a listener. These guys should be huge. And I hope one day they will be.
