Embrace the chaos and welcome the powerviolence of Leeds, UK foursome Gets Worse. Snubbed, the bands 11th release is 20 intense songs running at 27 intense minutes. Gets Worse has a genuine hardcore anger that hits you right in the gut, but you don’t mind as you will come back for more. With these many songs its nearly impossible to keep track of where you are on the album. But it doesn't even matter, all the tracks blend together to bring you a lethal dose of adrenaline fueled pure hardcore.

The vocals are so manic and a bit fucked up at times as each member lends their talents, it’s a unique way to use vocals and sets them apart. The production is solid and sounds tremendous when cranked, it adds to the anger. The bottom line is, if you fancy hardcore and punk, do not overlook these guys, they will intensify your heavy collection.

From Vermont, grab some Double Nelson IPA by Hill Farmstead Brewery. This 8.00% ABV IPA is a bit strong with flavors of citrus.

Final Thoughts
Stubborn is a solid hardcore album with absolutely no filler. It’s refreshing when we come across a hardcore band that has always stuck to their signature sound without selling out for the big single or get into that nu metal hardcore bullshit.
