Review: The Rise

The Rise
““Signal to Noise””
(Ferret Music)

Wow. The Rise are stepping in to take hardcore to that wonderful place that The Refused told us about so long ago. Hardcore as a concept rather than a limit. Bands like At The Drive In, The Locust, The Refused and now The Rise have spent their time wisely testing the confines of hardcore’s stylistic boundaries. Innovation, experimentation and evolution resulting in excellence. Revolutionary noise that promises a new world of sound. Jagged, resonant dual guitars. Jerky, unwieldy bass. Dense, blasting drums. Pleading, furious vocals. Twitchy, shocking electronics. And icy crisp production. Indescribably good. Buy this record. See them live.
