For a band that didn’t exist much further past the release of this, their only full-length record, RAILHED sure managed to cover a groundswell of territory. It’s emotive hardcore, not unlike that of their neighbors on Beecher Street, threaded by deeply personal lyrics and a pull between downright anthemic riffing and melancholy chord progression – a dichotomy that presents only part of the reason why this record can hardly be mired in any one genre. And again, ahem, we’re not just saying that.
