Album Review

On their debut album's cover, Erie, PA's Struck Down are seen walking out of a stylized Japanese rising sun, their guitars slung purposefully over their shoulders like soldiers on the march, their apparent mission: to carry out the given title of Revolution. These impressions are quickly confirmed by the traditional, straight-edge hardcore songs heard within, preaching messages of understanding ("Humanity"), individuality ("Action"), almost excessively goody-two-shoes self-improvement ("Education"), and all-around positive, take-charge attitudes.
