Although upstate New York hardcore outfit BUILT FOR BATTLE's Killing The Dream was released almost a year ago, they're still new to me. I must say Killing The Dream is a brutal onslaught of fury delivered with a 90's metalcore feel reminding me of early 100 Demons and All Out War. Even though the Metallic Hardcore sound isn't anything new or groundbreaking, BUILT FOR BATTLE does it right and just the way i like it. If you're not familiar with this band I highly suggest heading over to their bandcamp and giving it a listen. You can thank me later.
2017 marked a new beginning for BUILT FOR BATTLE by adding front man Rich Roberts (Brick by Brick), guitarist Joe Bockis (Cutthroat/Dead Effect) and bassist Mario Cangemi (FaceCast). With Rich only filling in temporarily, the band welcomed in Todd Ferrell (357 Justice) as their new Full time front man. Be on the lookout because they have some things in the works for 2018 via Upstate Records.
