BLACK MY HEART
BEFORE THE DEVIL
Tough guy straight edge is what Boston hardcore quintet Black My Heart uncoils on the nine-track BEFORE THE DEVIL. Gang shouted choruses, more chugging than a locomotive, and an essence of beatdown hardcore a la Bury Your Dead, Throwdown, and Terror can be found on “What You Know About” and “Remember Me”. Radiating the tones of East Coast brutality with conviction, Black My Heart may not be the most original or bloodthirsty band on the scene, but they do a stand-up job by providing concise chaotic hardcore concoctions.
