Another review from the pages of Profane Existence, this time a swell review of the Born Wrong/Kleins96 disc…look for a new Born Wrong video to hit the internet soon.
What we have here are two hardcore bands from Canada, BORN WRONG on Rebel Time Records from my hometown of Hamilton, Ontario with their debut on vinyl and KLEINS96 from Regina, Saskatchewan on Harvest King Records. Both bands are politically motivated and really pissed off at a lot of thing like religion, war and people’s apathy about things going on in the world today, all cool things to be pissed off about. They both have a tight sound with very little in the way of metal type sounds and some good breakdowns, perfect for having a slam or three. Great screamed vocals that you are able to understand, which is not always possible with modern hardcore, but they do have a bit of an old school feel at times. The production is pretty good, tight enough to fit all the rage in without losing control of the proceedings and clear enough to hear all the different sounds coming at you, but never to pretty to take away the toughness of the bands. I enjoyed both bands quite a bit and would love to hear more from both of them, they seem like they would both put on good shows with a lot of intensity and excitement. The lyrics are on the bandcamp site and it would be a good thing to take a look at them because they are quite good and heartfelt. (Rick E)
