Full Scale Riot are a band from New York that plays a very heavy form of hardcore along with some elements of punk and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Depopulation".
A very heavy hardcore sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and a few seconds later shouting vocals are added into the music and you can hear an influence of punk in the bands musical style along with a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Back up gang shouts can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with a touch of thrash and the music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's New York hardcore sound and a couple of the tracks also bring s in a touch of hip hop and as the album progresses a small amount of guitar and leads can be heard and on a couple of the songs a small amount of melodic vocals and riffs are utilized and the whole album sticks to a hard and heavy musical direction
Full Scale Riot plays a style of hardcore that is very old school and rooted in the 90's era of the genre, the production sound s very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Full Scale Riot are a very decent sounding old school hardcore band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sheeple" and "I Can't breathe". 7/2 out of 10.
