Strike Anywhere – Iron Front

Strike Anywhere – Iron Front

CD 2009 Bridge Nine Records

Iron Front is Strike Anywhere’s debut full length on Bridge Nine Records. Strike Anywhere is a melodic hardcore punk band from Richmond, Virginia formed in 1999 after the demise of frontman Thomas Barnett’s previous band, Inquisition. They are not just another aggressive, melodic and up-tempo hardcore punk band. They are a political band, even kind of a social and political movement. Their music touches and their lyrics deal with social, ethical and political issues. On Iron Front its about war, child soldiers, human rights, police brutality, politics and so on.

Iron Front is a very powerful and strong album that leans more towards hardcore then towards punk. It’s a heavy and aggressive, dark a bit noisy but still melodic and catchy as hell. Call it hardcore, call it punk, I call it Strike Anywhere at their best. 8.5/10
