Ringworm-Justice Replaced By Revenge

Justice Replaced By Revenge CD
Victory Records

After being disappointed by the last few Ringworm releases, I went to listen to Justice Replaced By Revenge with a bit of apprehension. Their demo and The Promise are classic and essential hardcore records. Nothing they have done has come close since. This record is a step back to the right direction however. The classic Ringworm style is here, albeit a bit updated. There is, at times, too much double bass and chugga style that ruins so many newer hardcore bands. For the most part, that doesn’t take away from the songs though. Once in awhile I cringe at the drumming but Ringworm seem to have put out a record that, while not a classic, is pretty good overall. It took a bunch of listens for me to get into this, so I would say judge for yourself.
