REVIEW: Failed State – Count me out

Failed State – Count me out

CD 2011 DIY

Failed state is a new, promising and dedicated Belgium (Limburg area) hardcore band that formerly was known as Burning Kid. The band consists of hardcore and metal scene veterans who already deserved their stripes in numerous bands as Mindless, Buckshot, Trust, Icarian, Emeth and probably some more …

‘Count me out’ is the band’s first and self released CD with nine straight forward hardcore songs. What you hear is real passionate hardcore, build on the ruins of the musical past of all the band members. Therefore the sound combines elements from old school hardcore, new school hardcore, metalcore, … to an energetic and aggressive whole that keeps you in a tight grip from the beginning till the end. Listening to ‘Count me out’ is like taking a trip on a roller coaster: going hard, slowing down, roughly shaken and ending up wrecked.

Failed state is one of those bands that bring the passion back into the hardcore. This positive attitude is something you can hear on the CD but also see on stage and in everything that surrounds this band.
