NYC's the Casualties are the voice of the disenfranchised and disillusioned. Twenty-plus years in, and these street fighters are still angry and keeping the spirit of hardcore-punk alive. Taking their inspiration from early leaders (Discharge, the Exploited, English Dogs, and GBH) and the metal-edged NYC hardcore of yesteryear, the Casualties deliver street-level punk with a new level of aggression on their new album Resistance. Resistance rails vehemently against a dystopic world gone mad; failing world banking systems, the regression of personal rights, and the poisoned-politics of a corporate-bought government among them.
Resistance is the Casualties at their most metallic, most vicious, and most anthemic in years, and proves beyond a doubt that true hardcore-punk is not dead.
