Hammerfist are a no bullshit Hardcore band from Southern California. They are not the kind of guys that will look to explain out the deeper meaning of their songs, or the instrumental idiosyncrasies of their various guitar tones or drum beats. To the contrary, Hammerfist seem like a band that would look you in the eye and say, "here's our shit, so deal with it!" Fair enough. Since I assume this about them, I'll give a little of that back to them. No BSing around here, and no looking for a lot of words to say. ISOLATION is a pretty damn solid hardcore EP that would certainly please the Agnostic Fronts and Integritys of the world for developing their influences into something tangible in 2013. There's a LOT of power here on ISOLATION, and a lot of from the heart energy that's poured into each and every song.
PITRIFF RATING - 97/100 - It's an EP, and to be honest, I could write like I normally do about this or that. No need to here though. This is a band that takes all the greatness of the historic hardcore scene, incorporates a bit of ProPain into the vocals, and dishes up a thunderous, unrelenting brick to the face on each and every song. This is as good as this style of music gets. Get it!
