Beowulf is an old school crossover act whose latest endeavor finds the band tuning back in to its skate punk roots. Featuring 16 tracks that fly by in a vitriolic whirlwind of abrasive riffs and angular aggression, cuts like "Mission" uses dissonance to its advantage while "Got an Itch" harkens back to the days when Black Flag and X were in their heyday. Taking the DIY esthetic back to the beginning with style and grace without leaving out the intensity, Beowulf's travel back in time reminds us of a time when bursts of gritty three chord slice of life experiences shaped the sound that came up from the underground.
