REVIEW: Convict – Burn The Flags

SR012Convict – Burn The Flags
CD/LP 2015 Strength Records

The Belgium melodic old-school hardcore band Convict returns after 8 years with a brand new album called ‘Burn The Flags’. It is their fourth album and it will be released in January 2015 through ‘Strength Records’, the record label founded by Onno Cro-Mag (RIP) and Roger Miret from Agnostic Front. Convict certainly is no stranger to the scene with previous releases (’24/7′ and ‘The Passion flow’) out on Belgium’s/USA most legendary hardcore label ‘I Scream Records’ (Deviate, …).

When you put bands as Shelter and Ignite in a blender, add some H2O, some Warzone & NYHC and some punk rock sing-a-longs, you get a pretty good idea what ‘Burn The Flags’ from Convict is all about. It is good to hear that there still is a band in Belgium that plays this kind of energetic melodic hardcore.

Convict couldn’t release a better album to kick-start this band again. ‘Burn The Flags’ is been spinning regularly at the ‘Out Of Step Fanzine’ office. It still is growing on me and it seems that I can’t get enough of it. Grab it when it is released. 8,5/10
