SINCEBYMAN A Love Hate Relationship CD

When I stop to think about it, I am amazed at how ritualized “punk” music wound up. I won't say “saddened” as the boundaries of musical orthodoxy were thoroughly perforated by that lifestyle rebellion and pretty much unlimited aesthetic freedom has been available ever since to anyone willing to pay the cost in terms of career potential. “Punk,” of course, just opted not to follow that program.

Sincebyman plays fast, loud, intense and precise. The writing blends metal and punk conventions kinda evenly. Their sound does evoke that ambience of a jet engine revving-up for take-off adequately. And if THAT is your bag, nothing they do will discomfit you.

Their one deviation from orthodoxy is to tag on extended instrumental codas full of chattering synths and long peals o' feedback thrummery. That's pleasant enough, but nothing more than that. If they'd integrated the two modes instead of segregating they might've created something more original and galvanizing. They may still do so in the future, but not here.

If you're looking for more-of-the-same in a post-HC punk rock stylee this was made just for thee! [Revelation]
