Vision Of Disorder - The Cursed Remain Cursed
It has been a long time in coming, eleven years to be precise, but at long last we have the fifth Vision Of Disorder record, and the band have certainly not buckled under the weight of expectation. The Cursed Remain Cursed is as vitriolic and vicious as anything that has come before, a raging tempest of hardcore and hatred that will not only delight the old fans who were there first time around, but also bring a whole new wave of folks to rejoice in the word of VOD.
Tim Williams is the undoubted star of the show, his dual vocals mesmerising and beautiful as he switches with such easy between barbed wire primeval growling and his - simply awesome - clean voice so full of melody and emotion. But this would be for naught if it weren't for the eleven tracks of blistering riffs the rest of Vision Of Disorder unleash, a relentless onslaught on a par with their classic self-titled debut. The cursed may well remain so, but we are blessed that these NYHC trouble-makers are back.
