Ferret’s Review: Outlast-Take Control

Outlast Take Control 7″ Bottled Up Records A Straight Edge band from New Jersey that sounds like Youth of Today– what is this, 1997?  Despite the sarcasm, this is not at all bad.  They remind me more of Committed or Ten Yard Fight than Floorpunch.  Gang style backups, nice breakdowns, and posi lyrics throughout.  Just wish they were more creative with their song titles; they sound a bit generic.  For what they do, they do it well. Favorite track = “Power for Change”.
