Album Review

Justice Replaced by Revenge is the first appearance of Ringworm in four years, since 2001 and Birth Is Pain. Their particular strain of hardcore remains impossibly brutal — in "Seeing Through These Eyes" and "House of Hell," vocalist Human Furnace screams like he's using his own head to pound the snare drum. Fast, ferocious, and unfailingly passionate, Ringworm remain as close to hardcore cohorts like Hatebreed and Converge as they do to the dark psychosis of Steve Austin's Today Is the Day or Lamb of God's new wave of American metal. Through "Day of Truth," "Devil's Kiss," and (the awesomely named) "God Eat God" they vary tempos with mechanical precision and fling hulking guitar chords off like punches to the brain. Metal-derived solos appear here and there in a flurry of notes, and "Whiskey Drunk" offers a brief acoustic interlude, but mostly Justice is focused singularly on its two-handed hardcore chokehold. "Life After the End of the World" sounds impressively live, while "No More Heroes" fires off even more defiant screaming and machine gun drumming. Some hardcore wants to consciousness raise, or at least preach solidarity. But HF and Ringworm's aesthetic exists somewhere else entirely. They shout equally at God and the Devil, and don't believe in Earthly help. Their creed is the fieriest form of self-reliance, a commitment to social atheism that has as little use for followers as it does heroes. "We never walk a worn path," Furnace screams in "No More Heroes." "We follow none; our heroes are gone/We are pure fury and wraith." And the music is, too. Ringworm's back; you've been warned.

Probably my favorite newer ringworm record. More metallic than precious releases.


Formed: 1991 in Cleveland, OH

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Ringworm erupted in 1991 from Cleveland, where they joined bands like Integrity in a brutal local scene that blended purist hardcore with heavy metal influences and punishing live shows. Promise appeared in 1993 through Incision, and Ringworm went on to tour and release several 7"s before lineup fluctuations and inertia sent them on hiatus. But the band returned in 2001 with Birth Is Pain, this time on Victory, and stayed with the label for the 2005 effort Justice Replaced by Revenge. Touring between...
