Touche Amore - To The Beat of a Dead Horse (2010)

This came out about the same time as albums by
Let Live and Chariot.

Those 2 releases are a great sharp shock of Hardcore
but stick pretty much to the formula everyone knows.

Touche Amore have screamed/shouted vocals but
the music is much more varied which puts it more
into post-hardcore territory.

Whilst never losing their power or drive, the guitars
drop in and out, switching between heavy distortion
and cleanly picked riffs giving the songs an identity
that is sometimes lacking in todays saturated hardcore

This delivers like a kick in the teeth but in a good way!
