Album Review

Hailing from Edison, NJ (and proud of it!), the Mongoloids prove that humor is not dead in hardcore with their second release for Eulogy, 2009's Assorted Music, which despite collecting all of nine new tracks, must be treated as an EP due to its petite 17-minute running time.

Its colorful palette may also scare away some hardcore purists expecting their typical doom and gloom, but that would be a real shame given the impressive and entertaining music within.
