FIRST BLOOD is not an unknown
band by any means, featuring ex-TERROR bassist Carl
Schwartz on vocals, FIRST BLOOD formed in early
2002 from the ashes of SWORN VENGEANCE.
Even without having played many live shows, FIRST
BLOOD has quickly made a strong impact throughout
the modern hardcore scene. The group landed their
first show sharing the stage with legendary members
of CRO-MAGS performing as THE AGE OF QUARREL,
and made a notable appearance at Hellfest 2003.
Previously releasing material on Division36 (Bridge 9)
Records and Deathwish Inc., FIRST BLOOD impressed
many for their brutal delivery and in-your-face lyrics
dealing with both social and political issues.

I picked this up because I enjoyed Killafornia. However, I clearly missed the point with this band. I always thought they were just half serious, half tongue in cheek, tough-guy hardcore. But I was wrong. These guys are dead serious and convinced they are on to something the rest of us are missing....over watered down breakdowns that haven't sounded so painful since Throwdowns Haymaker. I'll still enjoy certain parts of this, the same way I enjoy killafornia...With my mind off while jogging or something.
