REVIEW: Anchor – Distance & Devotion


Anchor – Distance & Devotion
CD/LP 2015 Gaphals Records

Swedish hardcore band Anchor has released their third album called Distance & Devotion and when I compare it to some of their earlier work, I have the feeling that their sound nowadays is a bit less brutal then before. Don’t get me wrong, ‘Distance & Devotion’ still is a powerful and heavy hardcore record but it seems that they have added some more melody, breakdowns and resting points to the songs, making them a bit catchier and more appealing to a larger crowd. ‘Distance & Devotion’ certainly is a strong record that will appeal to a diversity of hardcore and punk fans who embrace the more melodic and sXe hardcore sound. 8.5/10

1. Upstream
2. Into the storm
