Point Blank – On the DL

There’s a timeless line in the film The Godfather that says  “Just when I thought I was out… They pull me back in.” that perfectly illustrates my feelings about Hardcore music as a whole.  For years now I’ve found myself greying out of a genre that for decades was at the core of what my music consumption and show attendance. Thanks to bands like Queens’ Point Blank. I’m still finding reasons to go back to the well to reacquaint myself with that old friend.NLY-016 jacket lowresOn their eight song banger “On the DL”. Point Blanks first post demo release. The Queens band shows progress in both the musical and lyrical department. One can’t help but feel drawn to the dark bass lines and angrily pronounced vocals on “Life is too short.” Everything from the cover imagery to the short bursts of early 80’s rage and discourse reminding this bitter old curmudgeon of  what originally drew me to Hardcore in my early teens. Before the crossover. Before the tough guy posturing. Just Hardcore in its purest and most potent form. Archaic  and beastly Hardcore that draws you into the vortex of the circle pit. Give it a spin on Bandcamp and decide for yourself. On the DL” is available through Not Like You recordsin both digital and CD format. If you’re vinyl junkie like mysewlf. Keep your fingers crossed that itv will be pressed to 7′ inch format in the near future.  JD
