No Idols - Belief
Taken from the
Low (Swing the Pyramid Hands) 12"

With a droning, noisy mess, No Idols launches into a vicious assault of an album. Low (Swing the Pyramid Hands) is downright caustic sounding. From start to finish it is a crunching, sweltering batch of songs. The beginning of the record sounds like a massive beast rearing back before charging the listener with the intent to gore the listener. No Idols steals (this is meant in the most reverential and respectable manner possible) the most subtle aspects of bands like Cursed, Ink & Dagger, and Suicide Note to create a sound all their own. The album has several really good songs on it. "Temporary Solutions to Permanent Problems" has a super angular guitar riff that just sticks in your head. The real gem of this song is the lyrics. This line is awesome: "Ideals die because it's just so much easier to not give a fuck." If that doesn't describe a large portion of the current punk and hardcore scene, nothing does. "Belief" has a nasty, noisy quality to it. The song has a sound with the effect of having a fist shoved down your throat so far that the puke can't even get around it. "The Definitive Nucleus" has a ton of great sounds on it. The guitars just keep coming at you with different riffs while the rhythm section consistently keeps you on your toes.

At the cross roads of Botch, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Cursed, No Idols are playing dice and melting faces with an absolutely monstrous dose of creative and original sounding hardcore. These Syracuse bruisers feature Ryan Canavan (ex-The Funeral) on vocals and have been stomping around the US since 04, touring alongside the likes of Lords, Ruiner, and Burial Year.

These boys are furiously pissed and will leave you black and blue and out of breath.
