This Routine Is Hell – Howl
CD/LP 2013 Shield Recordings
This Routine Is Hell, a hardcore punk band from the Netherlands, has released their new full length album through Shield Recordings.
Their sound, from time to time, has a ‘Modern Life is War’ vibe going, which gives it a depressive touch at times but on the other hand its an energetic and grooving album. Its a record bursting with diversity through style and tempo changes but build on a solid foundation.
For most of us, the album will need a few spins before you really get it, but ones you are there, you will see that ‘Howl’ is a more then decent hardcore punk record packed with some social criticism. 8/10
