Every Time I Die – From Parts Unknown
Peter Salter

After a few years of trying out different things – none of them particularly bad – it’s great to see Every Time I Die return to what they do better than pretty much every other hardcore band out there. The seventh studio album from the New York five piece, ‘From Parts Unknown’, is the closest thing to the excellent ‘Hot Damn!’ since, well… since that album came out in 2003. Full of frenetic energy, absolutely filthy guitars, relentless drums and some of frontman Keith Buckley’s best lyrical work to date, this is a great punk rock record that picks you up by the lapels, and shakes you into submission. Guitarists Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams have ramped up the complexity of their riffery (not a word) once more and their work is only equalled by the incredible drumming of Ryan Leger. From Parts Unknown isn’t even ETID’s best record, but it’s still better than a lot of punk rock out there and it’ll definitely please long time fans.

Rating: 8/10
