Abusive Action-Self Titled

Abusive Action
Self Titled LP
Crucial Response Records

After a very solid demo, Abusive Action have come back to Earth with a pretty mediocre follow up. This release loses a lot of the energy that their demo had. The recording is even very flat and bland. One of the great things about their demo was the great production. The songs themselves have moved away from the Floorpunch style they had on the demo to a more melodic style. This is exactly the thing I despised about a lot of the post 1997 “youth crew” bands. Save the melodic crap for the next amazing-core band. I’d pass on this one.
