As metalcore keeps getting increasingly popular hardcore music gets the shaft and a lot of hxc bands get overlooked. Once For All is probably one of those bands that you should check out.
OFA keep it fast, fun and friendly with their freshman release “Down For The Getdown?. The vocals are real raspy and not too deep as with a lot of tough guy outfits, but the “chugga chugga? guitars have plenty of heaviness to them. The catchy song writing is what makes this album fun. Every song has that one part you are waiting for scream along with. The lyrics are nothing but positive and talk about how hardcore music brings respect and people together.
The album goes by real fast, a whopping 17 minutes, but if you are looking a good hxc album, I would definitely consider this one.
