Retribution - Consumed

Retribution doesn't offer anything groundbreaking, but what they do offer is some straight forward hardcore that seems to have a nice, raw sound to it that communicates more desperation and genuine effort than the usual macho posturing scenario that this genre is known for.

When the band is taking you for a ride with some fast beats they have a very tight sound which is complimented well by the frantic vocals.  Launching into breakdowns and two step parts to break things up, the songs have a nice flow that never seems forced or unnatural. 

I dare say there's a bit of 90's influence in here and at times I can hear a heavy Downcast sound.  This style hasn't moved me lately, but this stuff does. 

Listen to it here.
