REVIEW album Brutal Youth Rebuilding Year

Toronto’s Brutal Youth Release Raging “Rebuilding Year”

Rebuilding Year

Brutal Youth

Toronto’s masters of melodic hardcore, Brutal Youth, have just released their anticipated new LP Rebuilding Year (on Stomp Records) with a video for their title track Rebuilding Year.

The album calls to mind late 80’s and early 90’s West Coast punk, with hints of Adolescents, Big Drill Car, ALL, NOFX and Good Riddance scattered throughout. The melodic vocals of Patty O'Lantern soar above the wall of guitars and a backbeat reminiscent of SNFU’s Jon Card and Belke Brothers era.
