I’ve never really been a big fan of The Acacia Strain, but as far as loud and dumb hardcore/deathcore goes, The Acacia Strain are among the most listenable. Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know. The guilt isn’t there, even though songs with nothing but open note chugs come in spades. Vincent is just so damn angry!
The group have a new two-track 7″ EP coming out soon titled Above/Below, and you can hear the first song ‘Above‘ below. Heh.
Above/Below will be out November 12th through Rise Records. Pre-orders are available here.
