Paint It Black - Paradise

This band is real fuckin good, and pretty under rated scenewise. People would rather listen to crap that sounds like cats in blenders. This is straight forward hardcore with a little rock influence that keeps the dream alive.

They are indeed hybrids of the hardcore styles that have been around in the past 20 years, and yet throw their own spin on things, keeping them interesting. The fact that they're from Philly doesn't hurt either. Philly has been a breeding ground of quality underground music for years and will stay this way.

The lyrics are geniune and heartfelt, completing the package of being a quality release from a quality band, and surely something you will enjoy if you like good hardcore.
