I write often of an affinity for bands that remind me of hardcore in the lost decade of the '90s, and bands like Prince Edward Island's YEAR OF THE RAT convince me that I am not alone. From the PENI by way of DEAD AND GONE dirge of "Hominidae" to the understated phenomenal bass that drives "Truth," these fools crank out serious jams, and spend less than four minutes proving that you need to be on their team.

I'm on their team! I love when hardcore makes my brain think about the music a bit sometimes.
