By all means, Melbourne hardcore band Carpathian are shooting up quicker in the scene than a mans penis watching porn. This album is full of melodic riffs and heavy breakdowns! This is Carpathians first full length. When it comes to hardcore, the mornington boys sure know whats going down and they know how to mosh n roll the fuck out of a joint.

Marty is an extremely dramatic song writer. The way he sings his lyrics is absolutly fucking amazing! He knows what to sing and when to sing it n thats what makes his lyrics stand out. A lot of the lyrics are about freindship, trust and straight edge.

This is definantly an album worth checking out. By all means it aint the most technical album you'll find but its a f--king good listen! Unfortuantly for now, guitarist anth has left the band and therefore singer, Marty will be now playing guitar and Crafer (former iktpq singer) will be on vocals. This will be an interesting change and you can check out this line-up from hardcore '06 in July! Meanwhile catch Carpathian finishing up their 'Nothing To Lose' tour along the coast but don't worry they will be back out moshing like mad cunts soon enough.
