earth caller Crystal Death (CD, £12.75)
These are days of tumult and turmoil, when good people grow tired of the worsening status quo. Revolution comes in multiple guises, from armed insurrection to cultural shifts. EARTHCALLER is a call to arms, a loud rallying cry to mobilize, inspire and revolt. These five men from Melbourne, Australia adeptly combine the urgent bare-knuckled hardcore sound and spirit of First Blood, Terror and Madball with the crushingly massive metallic bounce of modern metalcore. Thereís even a bit of the ragged melodies of punk legends like NOFX and Bad Religion. Itís all driven by the socio-political consciousness and hip-hop feel of Rage Against The Machine, the frustration of the streets, and fused with the giant screamed choruses popularised by Linkin Park and Bring Me The Horizon.
