Comeback Kid – ‘Heavy Steps’

Nuclear Blast
Sick Of It All, Agnostic Front, Cro-Mags
Release Date
Nuclear Blast
Hardcore Punk

Comeback Kid have been on the hardcore scene for 20 years and the Canadian band are back with ‘Heavy Steps’ their seventh album. With this album Comeback Kid show that their hard-working labours allow the lyrics and vocal hollering bringing clarity and certainty to each song.

The instruments may be drowned in reverb, but this doesn’t really stop them from being catchy as jangly guitars are slung around violently to great effect as the Comeback Kid deliver a real NYHC 90’s feel with the likes of Sick of It All, Cro-Mags and Agnostic Front, but there is a unique sound here where it would also appeal to fans of Architects and even Gojira and Deez Nuts as Joe Duplanter and JJ Peters through tracks such as ‘Crossed’ and ‘Everything Relates’.

Although the nostalgia here makes you feel like a teenager again, towards the end it can get a little tiresome and mechanical, it does what it says on the tin, hardcore punk delivered hard and fast. It grows slowly but it is a decent comeback!
