For those who have not heard Twelve Gauge Valentine yet, that needs to change immediately! TGV has been making their mark on the hardcore scene with their new new style of metal meets chaos meets hardcore. This is not your typical chaotic hardcore band, there is wait for it… wait for it, STRUCTURE. Can you believe it!!!! The second I heard this band on purevolume I needed to own their CD, it is so good. Their is quite an element of Southern Rock N’ Roll in the vocals and guitar (they are from Louisiana after all). All the good stuff is from the South, go figure!
My two favorite tracks include The Greylord Operation” and “This May Be Our Last Picture Show”. Twelve Gauge is starting a new wave of hardcore in my opinion I have not heard anything like this. Prepare to have your face melted off!! So go check out their site or their myspace befriend them tell them Bryce sent you (we went rafting and cliff jumping together.) and buy their merch. They were hit by Katrina they need it.
