Retribution - Consumed

Retriburtion is a straight edge hardcore band from Michigan. They carry a pretty traditional sound that will remind you of bands like Have Heart, Carry On, Betrayed and others of that genre, but perhaps a bit more on the fast and thrashy side at times.

The production here is very raw and up front. This makes everything sound a bit dirtier, but at the same time more intense. The overall sound gives an impression of just bordering on exploding. High gain guitars, heavy reverb-ladden snare and bright sansamp bass tone create a nice full canvas beneath the shouted vocals. Some gang vocals are thrown in to tie up that traditional sound.

If you're looking for a band to fill the void of quality, traditional hardcore in your life, then Retribution may be able to do that.

Have a listen here.
