To many profanes, the one thing about most New York hardcore bands of the old days is that they all sound the fucking same but CRO-MAGS managed to bring some originality to the table with their own sonic brew. They have always been regarded as a classic example of the popular New York Hardcore movement, as well as one of the first bands to introduce metal influences into hardcore as they have never underestimated the power of the almighty riff. Plus, pissed off bands with a point to express always have good music and this is one of those bands. In 2018, John “Bloodclot” Joseph and his crew continue to play fast, scream and « spread the word »! Classic !
