Orange County’s Fury continue their unique blend of hardcore song-writing on this first release since their massive genre-defining LP ‘Paramount’, with two new tracks for their upcoming follow up LP and a cover of the often overlooked band, Ability. Fans of ‘Paramount’ will be pleased to hear more of those beautifully crafted elements of Burn, Outburst, Beyond every so subtly entwined. Track ‘America’ showcases the band’s ferocious side, with a guitar hook that catches you immediately, and huge crew back up vocals. Meanwhile ‘Lost in the Funhouse’ is more reflective and melodic, with the inclusion of sung vocals in the background that pull you into an expansive dynamic soundscape that Fury are known for. With that in mind, the cover is given such love, respect and attention, in its diverse parts, that one can be forgiven for not realising it was originally by a different band from LA in 2008, when a very different hardcore sound ruled the waves. Whilst the American version of this tape, self-released by the band, is donating it’s digital and physical proceeds to Planned Parenthood, the European release on Quality Control Records is donating to WAR – Women Against Rape and BWRAP – Black Women’s Rape Action Project.
